  1. I love this John. The third line, 'heads bent' adds an extra dimension to this haiku which really lifts it up...

  2. I agree with Frank, John :)
    and this is a scene we often see,

    beautiful, but some sadness to it,

  6. it must be evening time; time for vespers as indicated by the flowers having bent, a serene picture sketched.

  10. Place and what has taken place - both make a new thing: a haiku thing.
