THOUGHTS FROM BOTH SIDES OF THE FENCE

THE MAN: He sits quietly, Warm in his beautiful coat. What is he thinking. THE MONKEY: Sitting here alone, Contemplating lifes meaning. Freaking cold out here. For Natural And Beyond Contest by John Freeman -- Aug. 21,2011

LOL, witty piece, Judy. Never heard of Delta Dawn - my poem was about Dickens' character - perhaps the song was about her too?

Very well written Haiku! I've been back into writing several Haikus as well! I wonder how many "good" ones I've written! Well you can chalk your number up one as this is definitely a good one!! I really enjoyed reading it tonight!!
