  1. A visually stunning moment is keenly captured in Debbie's "ichibutsu shitate" (one-iamge/object/topic haiku) (for more info., see my "To the Lighthouse" post, "Ichibutsu Shitate," which can be accessed at http://neverendingstoryhaikutanka.blogspot.ca/2015/01/to-lighthouse-ichibutsu-shitate-one.html).

    And her haiku reminds me one of my tanka, in which I used a similar image:

    Lake Ontario
    cupped in my hands
    a Taiwan moon...
    her words linger in my heart
    there's no there there
