    I must try it, Ritu, although I love writing spontaneous poems… (perhaps because they’re easier…) xx

    Presents the picture perfectly. (It breaks me up when children can’t get clean drinking water…) I love writing spontaneous poetry but don’t, somehow, get on with Haikus Hugs x .

      Thank you Joy. Having spent many summers in Kenya, I saw so much poverty, and lack of water is the first thing…
      I didn’t know about haiku until.i started blogging, but now I love the form!
