    Dear Robert,

    A terrific haiku and one using the zoom technique (literally) to great effect.

    There's more layers to this deceptively simple looking haiku, but enough in the horizontal layer to keep many of us happy for a long time too.

    I really love this one. Great haiku imagery.

    Robert, burning ants,
    magnifying glass in hand-
    one ant stares back- "WHY?"
