Interesting haiga. I admire the humane point of view which is Issa like. Thanks for adding me Gabi. It is so nice to meet my old friends in the facebook.

A true haiga in every way. Great photograph that stands alone with a great haiku that stands alone and when the two are combined, voila!

I love that spider's coloring. She's beautiful! And she's so radiant in her expectant condition! :)
