    i am reminded of my childhood, martin.


    a very good haiku, (however), for lack of a punctuation mark and a letter, the score could have been one hundred

    icicle-
    drippings from the eave
    to the sill

    some might hurriedly say, " there's an error in the first and second lines between a singular and a plural noun, not true.

    a pure juxtapose, being exemplified.
    the icicles are melting, and the drops of water are falling to the sill

    if only i could place a number to "somewhere on simpson"


    nicely done, martin

    A sign of spring:
    in the front of the old house
    the first puddle

    caressing
    nape of her neck
    anger fades
