    Sitting and enjoying the surrounding in the valley of peace, I see this person staring with a slight smile etched upon the face...Fabulous imagery in this Haiku..... (Report) Reply

    A valley wherever may be what ever may be the altitude is always beautiful and so is the Haiku written on it. (Report) Reply

    This is amazing...Yes, I can read this and think of a valley. And there's the extended metaphor....the lone individual, at peace, and his/her surroundings....just amazing. (Report) Reply

    The valley is at peace with its place in the hills and thankful to time for carving it out

    Thank you, Liza. I saw a photo of a beautiful valley in Kashmir and was inspired to write on its behalf.
