Well on goes the game, I will treat you the same. If you're kind you will find. When the heart is caressed. It's for sure that's when you'll feel blessed. :)

Jan: Very clever. That "short" form wouldn't work for me. I'm a man of tooo many words even when I've nothing to say. :o) Thanks for sharing with all of us on the soup. oldbuck

Exactly...never to underestimate anyone or take things for granted! At least this is a stalemate and not a checkmate:) ~ Our new year has arrived and been here 37 mins. Yours is 23 mins away....Happy New Year to the Allisons; May it bring you happiness and much inspiration! Hugs // paul

Glad I came to take a rook at this one and check it out, even though it's the middle of the Knight. A fine Senryu, Jan. Have a great new year, hopefully better than this one. Viv x

Jan, far too many people live their lives like they were playing a game of chess, the world could use a little more compassion. Best wishes for the new year. John
