Your haiku are marvellous. Always with something of nature..and that jolt. Wonderful.

Thank you very much Joan, at least somebody is brave enough to comment. Sometimes haiku is referred as nature poem anyway. I try to follow that classical or traditional haiku format, observing what is happening in nature and juxtaposing it with human nature.

Poignant and evocative. Great 'ku. I am moved and caught up in your "haiku moment."

I'm trying something new, a haiku challenge for blogger's. Try it, you'll like it, I know I will!

Thank you very much Dark Moon for your nice words, I'm red all over. Am glad that you like it. Your blogger's haiku challenge is challenging all right. But it's hard to have three predetermined words in a haiku. I tried but it's no good, hence I didn't do it.
