centennial trees
longing to see the motherland
they bloom

—From a Japanese friend, physician Yukari ban-Hatori

Galileo saw
Our anchors in the blue sky
Great heaven of stars

  1. Thank you very much for putting my haiku and giving me a wonderful response!!
    I really like the part you use “Galileo”!
    Starts we see now existed light years ago. They no longer exist in the universe but still shine on the earth. It’s fascinating.
    Thank you! Looking forward to reading your tomorrow’s haiku. yukari
