How precious is the flower
About to bloom,
It is still the mystery.
How delicious is the flavor
That lives in the mind
And not yet on the lips.
How beautiful is the scape
That you imagine
Long before it is seen.
How dear is the love
But cherished more every day.
as a post script:
voting is over and "winners" have been selected in the haiku
submittal for the upcoming NASA launch of "MAVEN" to orbit
Mars. Although only one of my haiku garnered a vote (it got
one vote, and I didn't vote!), that haiku was selected by the folks
running the competition for recognition on one of the MAVEN
What a nice honor. (I wonder who cast that single vote??)
