Drifting in conversation . . .

This was another spring haiku outing in one of the many Japanese Gardens in our area.
If you look carefully, you can see three people in blue on the far side of the pond.
The one in the center is Dave Wright, who was president of Yuki Teikei 
for several years until 1992. Obviously, he is writing haiku!
The one to the right is his wonderful wife, Rosalynn, 
who was always able to enliven any gathering with her good cheer.

drifting in conversation--

in the area with no pond, too
cherry blossoms scatter
