    🙂 And I reply,

    Flowering friendships
    Delicate cherry blossoms
    Mountains add much strength

    You were inspired, Mary! I’m glad 🙂

    I have to admit I am not quite satisfied with my reply Haiku. Perhaps this is better?:

    Flowering friendships
    Delicate cherry blossoms
    Strong mountain backdrop

    These haiku have a way of drawing one in, don’t they?! I like the image of the mountains adding strength in your first version, Meghan. In the second version I see them as standing passively and the piece doesn’t have the same impact for me.

      Thank you, Mary for your comments. I had not thought of the second version of the mountains as being passive. Good observation! I really was trying to say that the mountains add strength to the beauty of the blossoms and flowering friendships.

      Thanks for writing your haiku; I really appreciated what you said. 🙂

      Yes, haiku can draw one in a very compelling way!
