And such a lovely description in your own words of Haiku .. and being a May baby your title is awesome .. emeralds are my favorite gem as they represent not only the photo visual but my birthstone as well... this was an enormously fun contest do write for Raul and thankxxx for placing The Green Mile as one of your winners... the photo reminded me of the movie of the same title and how the caterpillar is a prisoner of his own body until he becomes the elusive butterfly.. luv.. "Sweetheart".. ty.
