    1. Thank you, Andrea. That’s very kind of you. I love writing haiku and sharing my little meditations with others, hopefully to cheer them. This was the original reason I started my blog, but then I sort of branched out into posting other stuff as well, as I got to know more and more people in the blogging community.

    1. I felt honoured having the chance to write a haiku to go with one of your lovely photographs, Cindy. And what an exciting thing to discover that our combined creativity earned the largest number of likes and comments. Perhaps we can do another collaboration soon. Maybe something with those lovely hummingbirds, eagles, or hawks.


  1. A wonderful achievement Sarah! Many congratulations on your 100th Monday Morning Haiku! I do so enjoy your beautiful photos and haikus which always match so perfectly. A gorgeous oasis to refresh and delight in blogland 🙂 I’m sorry I’ve missed so many of your posts, I’m emerging here slowly. But I did want to let you know I am still here and to say how much I look forward to your posts dearest friend 🙂 xxxx

    1. Dearest Sherri, I’m so pleased that you see my Monday morning haiku special in such a positive light 🙂 We all need an oasis to refresh and delight in, amidst all the stresses and strains of life. Like you, I’ve probably missed some wonderful posts when I’ve been on my sabbaticals from blogland but always almost everybody has been here on my return to welcome me back, as I’m sure they are with you! Love and hugs, Sarah xxxx
