I think that's how I was struck;
right between the shoulder blades!
Knocked the wind out of me...
I like what's happening to the tree and sky. A sense of alarm and impending fate no one can resist.

_Not only do I like your haiga, Sakuo San, it reminds me of a fictional story I wrote years back about an American Native clan, a coincidence.
_In short, a contest was immagined by a young woman of the tribe, and that "Arrow Catcher," won the heart of that maiden; only those interested in that young lass... would enter such a riskful contest.

Thank you Bandit san,
Your poetic words made me drunk. They are so sweet to my ears.
I could really enjoy to paint picture.

Magyer san,
>Thank you for your precious talk about Arrow Catcher"
>My neighbor who like Indian arrow has made it by himself taught me style of bowing arrow.
It was very helpful.
>Your prose stimulated me much.
