I love the fact I misread the haiku:
Now on revisiting and reading it correctly I get two wonderful haiku for the price of one!!!
…..then I went and misread your comment (as string) Alan, and gave it a like! D'you fancy a joint trip to the opticians?!
Lovely ku, Katrina – a great twist, beautifully executed – really jumps off the page.
Ah, but it is string, and very neatly and nicely clever play on spring/Spring. :-)
You really do need that trip to the optician's Alan! You wrote spring – I thought you wrote string, and gave it a like! Check your diary, I'll give the optician a ring in the morning…..xx
Yes, spring and Spring and then it was how long is a piece of string. :-)
all dressed up
nowhere to go
I read this as stuffed with spring which is a wonderful image! 😀
I liked the last line "stuffed with string". It speaks of so many things that seem simple and common and yet most of the time we fail to notice them.
