Have to confess that I'm not so familiar with haiku works. But the way you write haiku make me read it and enjoy it, and this is the first time I'm reading haiku form and have started to like it very much. Keep up the good work and hope to read more from you.

@ Rumya...you got the meaning abs right...
opening from a closed state is very difficult and needs a lot of courage...it applies to nature as well as to the human mind in the emotional, rational and social context
sacrifice and thinking beyond self as the flower does in it's beautiful and envious life is very difficult too.
