The Kid and the Bald Eagle


                                     flying to the pines
                                     kite pursues a bald eagle...
                                     chests puffed up with pride

    The title of this haiku drew me right in. I couldn't resist clicking on it. I have to admit, it is an adorable haiku. I see that you found(or re-found?)"dandelions grow" :D

    I keep clicking on things but they are all poems of yours I've seen . Too bad you don't have as many for me to see as I have for you. hahaha. But that's what happens when you go away for a whole YEAR. hahaha. Thanks so much for all your comments today. It's always appreciated. Luv, Andrea

    The second verse lends itself to a bifurcation of meaning, like two roads parting in the woods. Love it.
