Hi Casarah, Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed it. All actions have consequences. With haiku you try to tell a big story with a few words. Who wouldn't be temped by a big red ball floating on the water?....You just have to watch your step. (The poor person never had swimming lessons.) Have a great week end. Take care. Earl

Hi Anne Lise. I'm glad you liked it. The lure of a big red ball and no swimming lessons is a recipe for disaster. Thank you for commenting. Have a great week end yourself. Take care. Earl
