  1. The circular movement of this is clear and complete and mysterious. Lovely.

  2. really really cool

  3. This makes me feel so peaceful. Love the photo and the words.

  4. Geraldine, this is precious. I have a YouTube (not released yet) showing fish swiming lazily around in the pond, in circles. Your haiku reminded me of the way I felt that day. Until I realized that I should take a video. Great!

  5. Yes. No, the last parts were suggestions of conclusions to my poem that I decided to air. For sure the second one was not true in that my love had died. However a divorce can be just about as rough on a person. My word is that I was experimenting and hastily decided on pushing the ‘publish’ button.

  6. I love the image in these words, bringing them to life.

  7. This evoked such wonderful imagery…lovely!

  8. Love the images with thoughts and photo

  9. Bravo! Love the photo and the thoughts. “Thinking summer thoughts” is spot on.

  18. Hey Geraldine, thanks for your concern about me and my ‘troubles.’ That divorece was the best thing that could ha ve happened to me except for the first one to have worked out.
