    Maybe not by the book...but I don't care much for the rules anyway...I think its very cool. And to your question...I shot the snake...the dog (dogs can take a rattler bite better than people) her nose swelled up to the size of a softball. I felt terrible for her....but it was a little comical.

    I don't know about that. if not something a magazine would accept , I think at the very least, it has the elements of haiku. The contrast in that third line is really awesome!

    There would be so much less cruelty in the world if more followed this plants simple act. Great thinking, Sara. SuZ

    This is a tremendous and enlightening write my friend! You have written a wonderful Haiku, even though you said it wasn't a true Haiku...though I believe, as Nette said, that this is a contemporary Haiku...this is an awesome poem Sara!I loved reading this delightful piece, such an amazing poem, Great Work!!
