    I do agree with Gerard and Andrea---but I'm also happy to see your name in the list--congrats nonetheless with this very creative haiku, Sharon! I hope you're having a relaxed day and evening--you soo deserve it--nikko :)

    This might been higher, but I'm glad it made the list. It has a smooth, soothing flow, which is kind of a paradox, considering the holiday. Regards, Gerard.

    Wow! Love the last line, Sharon. The stars will be taking a back seat to the pyrotechnic illuminations tonight. Enjoy your Fourth of July! :) Carolyn

    oh, my, THIS , my dear, is haiku!! By the way, I saw you commenting to Nikko on how your comment disappeared. And I know that your MARVELOUS poem did not get into Nikko's contest where it would have deservedly have won big there. CAn you figure out what is going on with you? You need to enter a contest and ask the judge if it is showing. If not, let the staff know. Sometimes our comments go to a new page under a person's poem, but I didn't see a new page under Nikko's. VERY stange. Luv, andrea

    That's is so gracious indeed of those stars-- I really liked your take on this--very unique, Sharon! That last line was so cool too! I think it gave a good contrast to the "natural" stars--wish you the best in the contest! nikko :)

    A wonderful entry to the the contest. Good luck. Wonderful apt images

    form is almost perfect and yes it is haiku rather than senryu since its all nature & no man...line 2 is the least haiku-like and makes the read feel more like a sentence. Put an action in line 2 instead of a continued discription. At the end of line 2 put ... or -- which indicates the next line is the cutting line the line meant to evoke emtion regarding the topic. Hope this helps!
