  1. if they are hallowing they way
    shouldn’t they be soul companions?


  2. Look for A Lovely Thing

    This is beautiful. I like the last line “hallowing the way.” I like Jazz’s idea of “soul companions too.

  3. Yes! Flowers, like birds and trees, have a holiness about them, don’t they?

  4. Hallowing the way – nature certainly is a holy place. Nice choice of words.

  5. Yes, one can’t avoid them. Always there like watching over us. Nicely MMT!


  6. Sole and hallowing make this a deep and also beautiful haiku.
