Is the second haiku a translation of the first? It reminds of " to think is to create". I need to reread some of the PSI materials and notes. A special presentation by Thomas D. Willhite comes to mind.

    It is a word for word translation (with some poetic license of course).

Lovely and thoughtful, as haiku is meant to be.
So enjoyed your translation. Best wishes, Mary Ann
