Hello zanya,

I enjoyed reading your tribute to Brooke today :) I'm not normally a fan of the haibun and skip them, but here I can see that the poetry form has its merits. I enjoyed you sharing your memory of Brooke followed by a little haiku to sum it all up.

There is nobody like Brooke and there never will be again. She was unique. She will be missed for a long, long time.

her love of dandelions gave her a unique status in this site. not only dandelions ,she could write about anything from nature and include a human interest.
i have been missing her poems ...

Hi Zanya,

What a beautiful tribute to your dear friend and mentor. I am sorry to say I did not know her as I have just recently returned to the site after an absence of 10+ years.

Two offerings for your consideration:

"dandelions yellow
florets sway sadly in breeze.
Brooke bids adieu"

Did you mean to cap the first word and place a period at the end?

Thanks so much for sharing.

Jan
