their dirty laundry

    This haiku is good. I see a Jerry Springer moment in it. Well done.

    interesting haiku, but as someone said, "it reads akin to a sentence".

    spring moon
    airing dirty laundry...

    "thinking out loud
    adds to din
    earplugs in hand"

    and rather verbose.

    graham, creates the imagery, but so does anything else, if enough words are used.

    your thoughts were good, graham, though i ponder over how much thought was given to it's composition.

    wondering, what is "it", "guy" loves.

    again, i was in agreement with stella, until she stated, "well done". perhaps, just perhaps, a valid thought, she was completing her dinner order, as she reviewed graham's work. might i suggest the merlot.

    realising that i watch
    the moon more on films
    than in the sky

    dropping her ring
    beneath the coffee table --
    overlooked black sox
