The theme or phrase in Haikuworld's September 2008 kukai in the Free Format section was "any type of Rock or Stone".

This was the entry I submitted. It attracted a total of ... 2 votes. Oh well, better luck next try. :)

Both are lovely, I especially like the second, the visual of the wildflowers peeping, they do look
like they are indeed peeping.

You stop working TOO hard and write more.

And good to see you turning off word verification. I know you got a lot of spam a while back.
