Haiku is to poetry as espresso is to coffee.

Your haiku, this one especially, does just that for me. Something comes back that has always been there, but is too easily forgotten.

This has all the elements of a great haiku (in my opinion).

Thanks, aurora.

Jonathan, I love how you read this, and I'm very pleased you get something out of my haiku in general.

Don't worry, floots, if I ever get to Skye, you'll know it, and I'll take you up on that cup of coffee. The moment that inspired this actually occurred on my most recent visit to California.

Vaughn, your opinion matters to me a great deal.

And thank you, polona.

What a masterpiece...!!
the hill symbolizes DIGNITY for both share the high standards.
Mist symbolizes common tiny troubles of life.
The message is of: beating troubles through keeping a quiet mood, patience,,,the same as the hills which defeated the mist gradually.

Thanks for your comment, Rita. I confess I don't see defeat and victory here. For me, the hills and the mist and the observing consciousnes are all part of a single reality. But that's me.
