  1. Welcome back Mariya, missed you. What an awesome spiritually touched haiku on sadness. Very well done. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Kristjaan, thanks a lot for a warm welcome 🙂 I know this haiku is not by the rules, but I couldn’t “make” myself mend it 🙂

  3. yes sadness does that…

    I think I maybe be reading too much into this little grain, but it’s incredibly sad.

  5. moondustwriter, thanks a lot for your comment! Yes, sometimes sadness is simply too much to hold within…

    Sopphey, thank you for reading that much. I believe it is sad, and I am glad this little grain conveyed that much.

    After all, a poem on Sadness is supposed to be sad, isn’t it?

    Wonderful thought. If just sadness slipped away, in my experience, it just grows inside.

  7. Bjorn, you are so right 🙂 It would be nice if it slipped away. Thank you for the visit!

    Mariya, this seems to be an apt poem to express that sensation of leaving sadness behind and moving on to a less confining emotion. But then, like Sopphey, I might be reading too much into it. I liked it, though.

    Good job.
