  3. Interesting what my first reaction was to the image, especially considering Chagall's Jewish provenance. I thought it was a nativity scene! So I wondered, why is Karen celebrating Christmas in April? Well! Moving right along, I love your poem, which like all your haikus, is layered and evocative.

  8. A descriptive haiku that speaks to the message of the artwork. A thoughtful response, Karen. "staining innocence" is an apt way to express brutality. Thank you for sharing.

  18. Indeed, the ultimate dilemma of living life, which is growing up to live it more and then losing something in the process.
