Oh, I read this twice and suddenly got the little tale it was telling. What a cute story it is. And the animals get to amble!! Delightful, Robert.

Wow! You certainly mastered the alliteration form and employed it vividly to create unique and creative images in your haiku, Robert. Tried to do this one, but couldn't. Wishing you success in Chris's contest! Love, Carolyn

Hey Robert! T'would be the ideal time for other animals to amble, when the " full"! Good luck with this write in the contest! The haiku can be tricky, but writing more that can stick together, while holding their own, is an amazing art. Best to you, Mikki
