ooooh I like this one, Donna! You really got the gist of that "a-ha" ending line :) And you started numbering them, too... haha. I haven't been on this site in over a year... and I see I've been missing out. Good to see how everyone is doing!

Since I LOVE the smell of blackberries and the marmalade made of them to me this haiku number 9 is like Chanel's number 5. Dutch Greetings Elly

As was common among the Japanese, one's haiku often called for a response. More common with tanka but this is delightful and I will reply: pail full of berries / sits far behind on the path / along with the snake

Very nice haiku. My apologies for not being around for a while. I've made a major but temporary move to the NW corner of the USA. Adjusting is more difficult than I thought it would be. However, I'm recovering slowly, slowly ... Jack
