    Almost always a sucker for shadow haiku. A hand within a hand will always get me too.

    Is it just a Canadian prairie thing that foggy windows and handprints immediately had me parked in lovers' lane ;-)?
    A great Valentine's haiku.

    _So many tangents to explore; I hope your not offended... as I ramble away from the clear romance of your words.

    peering out
    rain streaks the glass
    cat attack

    judi, finding ourselves enarmoured, how many times has the "foggy window syndrome" resulted...
    or was it the call of the wild


    pine fragrance
    beneath a blue moon--
    foggy windows
