    Good inclusion of something experienced through T.V.

    I am still learning how to write haiku, Laryalee. Whom better to emulate than you. Great work. Simply loved the haiku.

    Gautam is right. I've been emulating you almost as long as I've been writing haiku.

    Great. The ancient and the up-to-the-instant. The stone and the photon.

    Lovely work, Lary. You've mentored far more people than you'll ever meet, I'm sure. So nice that this haiku found a lovely home.
