Yeah there is. Sounds like a wonderful place to live - alas, not!

Glad you liked it Paul. A cautionary tale!

A more sensory line 3 would have made a stronger haiku, but it was VERY unique, thanks so much for the entry. Congratulations on your win. Light & Love

Sad for the islanders who were removed and told they could return afterwards - then abandoned! Take care.

Cheers Barbara. The wildlife is thriving at Bikini but only a handful of people occupy the island. The soil is all contaminated!
