I was looking through P-Soup's "Best Haiku" section ... and stumbled upon this one. I can certainly see why! That last line is fantastic. It's surprising to me that, while haiku is one of the shortest forms of poetry, I still find a lot of people use words that didn't seem necessary, and would have been better left out. Each word in this had something to say!

"A sun on her leash". How profound! She can only go higher each time she looks up. Short but loaded!
