Caterpillar



let me sleep
within my cocoon
in peace

silk rain
on mulberry leaves
I wash my face

I play the flute
amid clouds of love
like butterfly


This Haiku is shared with Carpe Diem - Caterpillar.

    1. Is there any way you could move the ad behind your header to the side bar or something , if its ok ? I feel as though a large space separates the header and the post . .

    2. * ad below your header , not behind ok

    3. I too have been thinking on moving the ads, or changing its style so that the space doesn't look empty .. will do it this weekend :-)

      Thanks for such lovely words on my Haiku :-)
