Agate in the fields,
paddy verdant stand and sway,
harvest bears true jewels!

      1. Thank you once again for the encouraging words. 🙏🏻🙂
        I think it is a matter of formulating thoughts into absolute clarity on what you want to say, and then concentrating on how to convey it succinctly – mincing words, but not the delivery. Boy, it’s challenging, but exciting!


    1. Your comment, Ma’am, made me think about my action – yes, why didn’t I pick it up? Maybe I am subconsciously “grown up” now 🙂
      As the famous lines go: When in Nature, take nothing but memories, leave nothing but footprints!


    1. Thank you, Sir! Yes, a truly wonderful moment – I was crouched in the field just staring at the beautiful stone for quite some time. Looking up after a while, I saw the young rice grains just beginning to take shape in the fields, and that’s when this haiku evolved!
