walking home alone
through the early spring shadows
in step with her dreams

  4. “in step with her dreams” – a great way to walk.

  5. What a gift! To be in step with one’s dreams!

  6. This haiku doesn’t make me feel alone, at all…

  7. Twice in one day!, this time from CD and this was worth two reads! There is something wonderful about her skirt – how it (probably) sways in sync with her dreams too.

  8. ah.. this was nice.. to be walking in line with one’s dreams-

  9. Hard working woman dreaming of better, easier days … gorgeoud photo … and last line is beautiful … must be a joy to be in step with your dreams.

  10. a gorgeous silhouette to accompany your dreamy haiku. i am sure her dreams are even greater for the child she harbors on her back.

      Thank you, although I doubt it’s “perfect,” since perfection belongs only to the Holy One! Keep writing every day without fail, and you’ll start coming up with haiku you’re proud of. Best wishes!
