    a powerfl image Aaron, though I'd rather read
    the line break after: TVs.

    It's something always haunting my memory. I like the pathos of the haiku observation.

    aaron, the thought crosses my mind, perhaps you had a two line haiku under consideration.

    line 1, i sense is akin to a looking glass; giving one the ability to look back into the past, or even enabling one to stay out of harms way, while enjoying a bird's eye view.

    the words "bigger than life" flash through my thoughts; nearness, farness, a feeling of when man thought he was the center of the universe.


    thanks for sharing, aaron

    the contrast between peace and war
    so vividly portrayed.

    window shopping
    the tv indicates
    an economic upturn
