    Where is mongoose? Were is the sentinel? The photo is very nice. I have a feeling that it is a soft forest shower.

    • The ‘mongoose’ of the haiku is not in the photo, as that would be too close a connection for haipho (or for haiga). The ‘sentinel’ (watchman at the gate) is the mongoose, which appeared for a while to sit and watch over our entry. Vasanta Vihar is the stately house where the Indian philosopher-writer, Jiddu Krishnamurti, had once lived.
