    This is dreamy to read…..then comes the wish for awakening…..for humankind.

      I usually host the haibun Mondays and De usually hosts the Quadrille Mondays. I am not hosting this Monday though, Bjorn is doing that. I am not nearly as talented as De is but on her behalf, I thank you! Come on by. We are a friendly group. We don’t bite but have beem known to do liitle nibbles…like on twizzlers. 🙂

    Dawn is always so comforting to witness. The Japan Tourist Board photo is really stunning and so apt for your haiku.

    In that glorious silence, before the awakening, is where dreams are made… Love this.
