Haiku. Auf Deutsch. Or in English.

freedom to me, you say it beautifully :)
simple yet very effective. love it
Nice, Ralf :)Your comments at others are really interesting :)wishes, devika
Thank you everybody.@ gautami: Another scene, another feeling.@ Dalloway: I don't know, where we were. But it would be colder there.@ Lorraine & Dalloway: To me this scene is a very precise one, for there a just a few circular ponds here. They are 65 years old. It was Dalloway's haiga about her granduncle which inspired me, and a report about cluster bombs. Of course, freedom is in my mind too Sometimes violence seems to be the less horrible way to stop horror. Of course, there is always a price we have to pay.@ Polona: Well, I am limited in my use of English. So my verse have to be simple.@ Devike: Oh, I wish my comments were as half as good as your blog-notes. I can't say it there, so I do here: There is a lot of great and inspiring poetry there!Best wishesRalf
I love butterflies!! Beautiful!!
Oh thanks so much Ralf :)wishes, devika
