    —DEBBI ANTEBI

    Neat verse, and poignant. The word 'cut' reaches extra depth with the following phrase of the short shelf life of compliments, be it in a relationship, or in general.

    Wonderful verse! And subtly powerful.

    Thank you to both you DEBBI (and to Alan.)

    Your haiku brings our own transcience into play on many levels. And it's always good to be reminded of how short-lived our success or our failure when writing.
