    eerie stab wounds
    the cracks and crannies
    of a hive

    vibrant abstract painting
    - small pools of red
    on top of orange baubles

    Filling all the nooks and cranies of even a fermented mind:

    Being an old poet, I like show, over tell, even
    though haiku editors do not seem to have a problem
    with tell?

    Nice image Ed.

    Sincerely,

    Gene

    looking upon
    the purple flowers -
    remembered by my mind's eye

    -

    when words are employed, showing equates to telling

    a pointed finger, decisively different; though some still can't understand

    "maybe" says it all

    "possibly", no alluding to the impossible.

    sorry you felt my response was a rebuttal to yours, gene, however your words brought to mind the ongoing discussion of "show" rather than tell


    "maybe"

    butter melting
    morning sun overtakes moon
    hot muffin soothes

    morning, knee-deep rain
    covering the grass ...
    branches from yesterday's tree
