LOL Good one. (Carol, Thank you for being a community builder and for unselfishly sharing your time to read and encourage poetry on this site. My life took a swift new direction about 8 months ago, and I have not been able to reciprocate. My thanks go to every community builder who enjoys poetry and encourages other poets, like I once tried to do. I love you…all! Lovingly, Dane Ann)

WoW! Poor little squirrel. I like skunks though. They really are pretty and sweet but will really make a stink if you scare them. A good write. God Bless, JB

Now Carol....this is an odoriferous haiku and I love the strong sense of smell you painted. Very fun. My old pet albino skunk named Ben wouldn't take a likin' to this tho. ha ha. Love, Gwendolen

:) That's very funny, Carol. Alexa Brus had a recent encounter with a skunk, but she managed to avoid getting sprayed by the smell. Love your haiku! Love the poet too, Carolyn
