  1. I got a kick out of the first line of your Haiku. Decided it has to do with where you’re from as to whether that is 5 syllables or seven. My friend from California says 1)wi 2)ld 3)flow 4)ers 5)with 6)er 7)ing . My Georgia friend says 1)wald 2)flaws 3)with 4)er 5)in’… ❤ From which part of the USA does the reluctant poet hail?

    • Well, now you have me interested and thinking!! Ha! I’m in the Austin, TX region. I’m so happy you share this with your two friends! I’m so honored. This is how I approached it 1) wild 2) flow 3)ers 4)white ) 5) ring – that’s the way I figured it. I usually try and break it down word by word. There are some words that are a little hard to figure and could (possibly) go more than one way i.e. memory – some chose mem-o-ry and others mem – ry. Thanks so much for making me think about this. I should probably consult the dictionary more!!! Ha!! Thanks so much for viewing and commenting!!!

  2. Although I have read so many I still don’t know the meaning of HAIKU: I really should consult a dictionary hahaha. Wonderfully written
