Another one of my favorites down in the HM's . Oh well, Nette. This kind you did would do great in that modern haiku contest I think Gwen is doing! (which reminds me, I did one for her and need to post it soon!!). Luv, Andrea

Love this, Nette. REALLY. But if for Debbie's contest, she'll probably mention that animals don't love, it's a human emotion, and she is wanting VERY traditional, Japanese haiku. Her thing, and I get that. We all have our passions. Hope you are doing well, doll. Hey, I just go me a paid membership. LOL. There goes the neighbourhood!
