I love the idea of nature making room for nature--the picture really went along with the poem's theme. Calm and mellow is why I like and you took that theme to a whole new level involving the beauties of nature

It's a very subtle, and very peaceful. "The water ripples" is so simple but it works so well.

I've never been quite fond of Haiku, this is pretty good.

I think that's a potential with most haikus, but the reference makes it a little more edgy - maybe the only thing I would think about is the word "ripples". There may be a slightly more unique way to describe the movement of the water. I don't think it's a huge deal though. I like it a lot.

I'm worried that some readers will think it is too cheesy. Do you think so?
