Anything is possible! If only that fish would stop splashing and drawing attention to itself! (Like some humans). Thanks for your sympathetic response and for the 7. And I enjoyed your senryu, too.

Your comments are appreciated and reassuring, because I am not that used to writing haikus. But the more of them I write, the easier they become. They are challenging and fun. ~~Darlene
