Thank you Demi. Fortunately in Malta we still produce excellent natural honey! Might be a wee dear in price, but it's worth it. Regards // paul

I'm so pleased that you liked this haiku, Andrea! Not placing in the contest is no problem; I mostly use contests as a source of inspiration, and getting a fav from you makes up for it:) Thank you! ~ Regards // paul

wow, Paul you are SO good at these. If this were in my contest, you would be in top three again with one like this!! I am resisting the temptation not to see what you cooked up for My contest this time. I hope I will be pleasantly surprised.

Your haiku conjures a lot of images ... all of which are joyful and satisfying. I do like how you evoke several of the senses .., does the setting sun taste like a day well spent, I wonder?

Hi Timothy....if it conjures a lot of images, then I am content with the result, because that's what I usually aim for in these short forms. The setting sun can be the dessert after the main meal. // paul

Nice vision in your words, Paul, and great interpretation of the visual. Best wishes for the contest. Sandra

Oh, Paul....How can it be that such a write evokes other imagery. Where it not for that last line, one would chide you for writing a sensuous write. Wonderful, indeed.

I've been on that wavelength, Eileen, but thought best to change channel, though the sensual music can still be heard in the background. ~ Thank you & Hugs // paul
