One response to “Today’s Haiku (March 11, 2018)

  1. Love it!

    If I may be so bold, I wonder about altering the articles:

    e.g.

    I would like to be born
    as a tiny person
    in the size of a violet

    or even:

    I would like to be born
    as a tiny person
    into the size of a violet

    or even:

    I would like to be born
    as a tiny person
    the size of a violet

    Just thinking out aloud, I really love the haiku! 🙂

    warm regards,

    Alan
