Oh Bernard! This Haiku is awesome! I feel like I'm right in the middle of the fray! I can vividly see, hear and smell this scene. A truly amazing write! :)

Thank you so much, Susan. Actually, your very beautiful Fire-Water Dance, though of course totally different, inspired me to take a stab at a haiku. So thank YOU! :)
