__For 'Dickie,' rest his soul; I repeated (lied) to my Granddaughter... Dickie's often told thought... now said in haiku.

What gorgeous imagery, D...the dipper filling up...but, oh, the trouble when it spills over...which it's starting to do here now.

Dear Magyar,
Thanks from the core of my heart for your kind & prompt reciprocation... as well as your word of 'Welcome' for my further visit to your fantastic blog.

It goes without saying that I shall keep visiting you from time to time as you have got a lot of literary stuff of my flavour. Your picturesque creation is,indeed, full of modern symbols & imagery.

In the end of your succinct comment, you wrote 'Soo-kri-ah'.
Perhaps you wanted to say 'Shukriya' (the popular Urdu word for 'Thanks') to me...isn't it, sir? That's a beautiful way of honouring someone by using a word from one of his native languages.

Here I would love to tell you that Hindi is my lovely mother tongue which has the word 'Dhanyavaad' synonymous with English 'Thanks' or 'Thank you'.

Thanks & regards,

Jitendra Jauhar

I'm a long-time admirer of the night sky, and the big dipper in particular. So creative! I love it!
Hope you're well, dear friend.
