    Cont'd--But in fact, by mixing mother nature and 'nature' of humanity, he is beginning to sound a lot like Izza or Takanura....please don't fall into his little word plays. Anyone who runs a haiku contest from now on, is going to become dizzy trying to play 'footsies' with Phong haha!~Chris

    Debbie! I replied to Phong on your blog. I invited him here months ago and now he decides to show up. Don't let him play you--I have known him for many, many years. Don't place him in your contest if he joins! Haha! He is an acclaimed haiku artist who is experimenting far beyond the falsity that haiku should only be about nature etc....I mean he started out that way when he was a boy, but now he is trying things that would be considered a 'no-no' by beginners.

    based on ancient superstition? I do believe I have heard this said...........which of course makes this haiku one of the best and the most clever! Great work!

    Here's the reason I don't think it's good haiku (though I am very glad folks like it) I still a seeing (not feeling as much as seeing) 2 images, 1 the person, 2nd the cricket, I think (from study on haiku the lines should give only 1 image BUT this is as close as I could get) I fall into free verse thought. I LIKE my little verse because it has layered ideas (see I back to ideas? yup not haiku enough) idea 1) if you catch a cricket you will have luck 2) the man wants to get lucky with his girl.

    LOL@your comment! "Glue Bits" is a cockney rhyming slang for "two bits." So Mary is calling out an advertisement of, "Two bits for a hunk." "Hunk" means you only get to have an "orange peel." If you want to go all the way, one has to pay 10 quid, which in cockney slang="Cock and Hen Bin Lid." lol~Chris
