When we stumbled on this powerful little haiku, we thought right away of Maria Robledo’s wondrous flower assemblages…where we found another surprising haiku hidden amidst her Instagrams.

Emerging from a perfect sphere;
Yet how long it is:
A spring day.

When we read that haiku we remembered that Maria Robledo’s Instagram was full of flower spheres…

…so we started hunting and gathering…

…and suddenly found this one, with Maria’s notation that seemed very much a haiku…

  1. Such a Monday morning treat! I confess I did read it at 3:00a.m. when it arrived. But I just tripped along from link to link, with beautiful flowers and wise sayings…such imagination with arrangements of both wisdom and flowers. It all seemed very gentle, soft. A soft landing on a Monday morning crammed with stuff to do-what a treat! Thank you, thank you.

  2. Hi Sal,

    I’m trying to figure out how to change my email address. Please let me know how to do that on the website.


  3. Hi Josh,

    It depends on WHICH email address you want to change.

    If it is for a Tinypass membership, you have to go into your Tinypass account and login; then go to My Account.

    If it is for the IL Daily Email, you need to sign up using your new email address (and be sure to follow Feedburner’s prompts). Then cancel the old address by scrolling to the bottom of an old IL Daily Email if you have one and clicking UNSUBSCRIBE.
