No matter the confusion Maurice, I ain't confused by this colourful gem. It so deserves to be in a contest, as I'd vote for it, James :)

The picture looks like the end of the earth. I like the first two lines best maybe you should cut that last one out?

How you post pictures though simple is complicated to explain. If you understand computers and computer terms here it is. A picture has to be posted first anywhere on the Internet for instance facebook. Then you need the URL of the photo that is the address of your picture on the Internet. You find it in the address bar of your Internet Browser. When you submit a poem at the bottom of the page below the space where you submitted your poem there is one more box. You can comment there and also add a picture. Push the image button and submit your URL in the space that says URL.

Yes it is for a contest. Haiku is a restrictive form only allowing three lines, first line 5 syllables second line 7 and third line 5. It is not everybody's Japanese cup of Jasmine tea. However I try to enter as many contests as possible in order to learn. So I entered this contest.

I love the poet...I mean the photo...no it's the haiku....gosh I love it all.

I had to rewrite. It did not adhere to the rule of nature in an Haiku.

because if you didn't say "(the rest of it isn't bad either)" you're afraid I am going to say "ok i'll keep it and change the rest".
