trusting it to feed the seeds
too small for me to see now.

    1. It's sooooo cute, isn't it! Though I kind of want to try to paint a watercolor version of it and write the senryu alongside it.

  3. I absolutely love what this poem says about hope. How it can come in ways that are unexpected, and even unseen. Yep, every line sings to my wild witchy woman's heart!

  10. We should never be critical of any living thing no matter how long it lives. So many living things are beautiful regardless of their time to exist.
