    What’s this; ‘Grace Institute,’ Frances, a haiku college?

  4. Rhoda Galgiani Says:

    Great visual Haiku. This is what makes this form special…nature and animals!

  5. syllableº17 Says:

    What animals, Rhoda Galgiani? there are no animals in this double entendre haiku. A tumbleweed is a kind of plant – a product of nature!

    A lovely haiku. I can feel the dry cold bite thru my jacket and see the sparkle of the early morning sun reflect off the skeins of ice.

    In answer to your query, Sublee Knapp, a coyote (strict definition)is: a small wolf native to western North America.
