Oklahoma Tango

             the dancing wheat fields 
                         tango with red fertile soil
                                        in great plain's ballroom

this write is in response to Raul's - Countryside Waltz -

    I can see the scene. I didn't know that Oklahoma has red soil. We have it here. If you will stick to it when it's dry, it will stick to you when it's wet. Keep writing. Sara

    Great rhythm for dancing in this haiku, Abe! Let's tango together on the "red fertile soil." Very imaginative! Love, Carolyn

    I can remember a time when some here at the Soup did not like reading Haiku. They did not consider them poetry and did not think it took anything to just jot them out. I for one have always loved them I know it takes more then a jot down on paper. I think it is absolutely fantastic that more and more of the Soupers are writing them and sharing them with us. Cheers to you all. You are saying so much with your 5 7 5 syllables. You all rock in my book. Love, Carol
