    I like the way "spirals" is both a noun and a verb, its dual nature accentuated by having its own line. Powerful haiku.

    Another winner of multiplicity of meanings. Nice.

    This one is so alive with meanings and images . . . it could be so many things. The two adjectives and that middle line heighten the intrigue and possibility. A memorable haiku.
