    Beautiful poem Chen-ou. Reminds me of the Issa one “A world of dew” but you have turned it on its head (the dry rather than the wet). Lovely work.

    That open ending has me visualizing the vastness of the desert. And yet . . .

    Dick, thanks for your discerning eye for my poem. When composing this haiku, I employed a Japanese literary device, honkadori, and tried to make it two-axis. Glad it worked.

    Bill, I enjoy reading your reply. That “and yet” is so reminiscent of Issa. LOL!

    I found time to read the story, Chen-ou…it’s fascinating and thought-provoking. And I do like your treatment here…”and yet” is heavy with possibilities. Fine work indeed!
