    perfectly framed as if one were looking
    through a window or the view finder of a
    camera.

    Always good to read something that takes me by surprise. This worked that way - that familiar first line, then swung round to mean show something different but still familiar. Nice one.

    The alliteration is a lot of fun to read. I thoroughly enjoyed the haiku, very original.

    I'm playing catch-up these days.

    Cinematic and emotionally just right.

    This speaks volumes, Ed!
    And a sad view of today's society...
