    So true. Life is just a blink of the eye on the universal time line. Great Haiku. It's getting very hard to find a poem of yours I have not read. If you find one please point it out to me. Love your work.

    Terry, firstly the title drags you in, so well done on that, then the haiku makes you stop and think... whoa that's me! I like, David
