    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Terri, it was not my intention to link up after reading the InLinkz privacy statement.

  1. Your photo is exciting Xenia and I love the haiku…evoking an unseen wonder that even ducks would have to pause and look. It also reminds me of place in the road where Canada Geese always seem to be crossing….
