Isn't it amazing how one image can convey such joy for some and such horror for others. This is a very powerful Haiku. congratulations on your well deserved win, John. Love, Lainie

excellent juxtaposition line 3 ...excellent set up in line 1, try to say what you said witout the I in line 2..As in all writting kind teach would say...who else would it be? some when we have so few words to use..."I" is not a good use of a sound. Tweak line 2 for better results and thanks SO much for following all the directions to perfection!
