Haiku #3: confluence

Today is my one-year wedding anniversary! The photo below was taken by my husband, Jonathan Montgomery Pollock, at Starved Rock State Park in Utica, Illinois, where we got married. We used this photo, along with the haiku below, as our wedding favor postcard. Now, this photo haiku, along with another of our collaborative photo haiku, will be featured this month on the show Haiku Masters on NHK World (and are viewable at the website's Gallery now, with the edit "his hand in mine"). I didn't tell Jonathan I was submitting these, and of course wasn't sure if or when they'd be accepted. I was going to post this photo haiku today anyway, and then found out early last week that they were indeed accepted. Perfect timing! So...surprise, Jonathan! Happy Anniversary!:
