    With the dawn of a cool setting, one gets in to a colorful world, in a dream though. Wow! Beautifully crafted with tremendous profundity. How you choose and manage words, it's amazing. Full marks Liu. Thanks for sharing (Report)Reply

    So pretty! I've been trying so hard to understand true haiku because all I learned when I was younger was that it was 5 syllables,7 syllables,5 syllables. But a few months ago I learned that that wasn't the case, and this seems like an excellent example of true haiku. Thank you for sharing! Hopefully I will be able to write them now, because this form is very appealing to me. I like that it's a form that is so little, but can say so much. (Report)Reply
