  8. In seeing your post, I had to look up the definitions of haibun and haiiku. It is very interesting. I have never written a haiku and after looking at the second photo I tried to write one (according ro the rules I read) and came up with these:

    North, south, east or west
    The right path must be chosen
    A quest leads the way
    Reflected in life
    Disturbed by summer storms
    Left to nurture many

    This was fun! It is fun to learn new things.
    Thanks so much for your post!
    I will keep trying!
