    Sorry to have caused you concern re questionku...it's fun to make up new forms, I believe my comment to Linda..which I have only made one was really more about her reading 30 or so of my attempts at haiku..'attempts' almost nothing I wrote before 2012 would I call a haiku..any no disrespect to you was intended...L & L

    You started quite a trend with the questionkus Richard, they are so fun to write, and even more fun to read what everyone came up with! Thanks for starting such an awesome trend :)
