    A charming haiku. It reminders of the Last Supper.However, I will venture to reply that:
    All of a sudden
    blessing the dishes
    a slice of sunlight

    your haiku reminds me of the morning
    the rising sun
    shoots my kitchen
    dish for quests

    Absolutely wonderful :)
    I really enjoyed reading this one - I intend on reading it another 10 times before the day is over, it really brings a smile to my face. Powerful and rather amazing.
