Monthly Poem and Pictograph in Earth Language (EL) - July 2003 -

. . . .

This is an EL(Earth Language) experimental page to enjoy
the image/meaning of a short poem originally in English/Japanese.
When you can't see the Japanese parts, please don't mind and just skip those parts.

On May and June, I was sick in bed, longing for relaxation in the shade of trees.
When I felt my recovery, I tried to visit some haiku web sites after many weeks,
and found this at Sangeet's Haiku and Poetry Corner. Balmy wind came to me,
imagining a moment, when a breeze cut in on their lively conversation.
The author is Harsangeet Kaur Bhullar (or Sangeet), Malaysian in the UK.
