  3. Dalloway, 11 too, is so parallel to the long grass that it (as well) is as un-seen... as the legs and necks of the IbIs. Corduroy? Lovit! _m
    [I scribbled something years ago "a pine grove, their trunks as parallel as corduroy"]

  5. Dalloway,

    This is a wonderful haiku. I'm sorry I haven't been around. My mother is visiting from Germany and I have been taking somewhat of respite. I have also been reading Basho. I feel as though I have forgotten how to write Haiku. Thank you for yours.
