__This, well imagined as I read the young people's book, "Where the Mountain Meets the Moon," written by Grace Lin. Its key storied thought is this, if you selfishly cling to that which you believe is yours alone, your greed can create your loss; if you are a giver, nothing will ever be lost.

__My Grand Daughter Maya (12yrs) handed her book to me... and ask'd that I read it. I'm glad she did; I'm glad I did.
__Lin's fantasy is a children's book, but a metaphoric lesson to all, and any age. Family!
__Was Maya trying to tell me something? ;<)
__Thank you Kim and Gillena, as always, I truly appreciate your views! _m

I really love this phrase that "if you are a giver, nothing will ever be lost."

Thank you for sharing your wonderful Haiku. I have a wonderful thought to ponder on for today.

Much love,
