    Hi Charles, can you take a peek at the haiku I just posted (the one I invite comments and chopping?) I like what I wrote, despite the use of subjective (word --escaped) I wonder if you see what I'm trying to project- I am interested in what the reader sees, interprets. I am mirroring something. Oops enough clues. whenever. no rush. I'd really appreciate your eyes.Thank you.

    Strong image.... hmmm.... I wonder if there would have been a way to change crowning to somehow signify that the nest is keeping the tree company... may I chew on this? Liked as is, but can I still offer another view? Now, I'm thinking as I'm typing. LOL. No, its your haiku, your viewpoint. I gotta learn haiku etiquette lol. Got your mails. Will mail you tonight. Weekends are mad here and my girl and I are playing dress up so no time right now.

    I don't know if the osprays mate later than the eagles or not. But I was told they take over empty eagle's nests.

    Thanks Kash, I think I just put up that poem, but the image is probably 20 years old. Back when I was fishing backwater of Santee Cooper lakes. A whole raft of Bald eagles and osprays. Do you get that word where you live "raft" meaning a bunch. People here say it all the time.
