Morning News Haiku


Where is the true world
with its shared dreams of spring thaw?
Who makes their home there?

Welcome to ODB!
I especially like the last line of your haiku...such a resonance of truth in how you paired the photo with the haiku :-)

Thanks for your kind comments, everyone. I wrote my next contribution in my head while driving to the grocery store... an interesting feeling.
