Well I really admire them but find it difficult to write some myself, I do write poetry but Haiku is very challenging as it's not hard to expand anything only hard to compress it so that it retains its meaning, in fact makes the theme come out clearer, and is comprehensive,..maybe I'll write a Haiku as good as this some day....Good work.
