Thank you! :)   It was a more quiet, thoughtful haiku.

This bore, in my mind, a suggestion of the quiet tragedy of the way that one looks at a beautiful reflection in the water and wishes so much to touch it. When touched, however, the reflection is distorted. But I still think this haiku was beautiful. And peaceful, in a way.

Lovely, it produces a vague and distorted image, very much like ripples across the surface of a pool.
