    Congratulations, Mary! I love it. Made me smile. I remember those from childhood. Brings up memories of blue skies, yellow corn, and red & white checkered tablecloths.

    I love this. Playful and matter of fact. Great observation.

    This brings back childhood memories for me too. Just lovely! I remember tucking into a sweet and juicy corn on the cob for lunch with my parents with those exact corn-on-the-cob holders. Thanks for your haiku!

    Thanks, Vanessa!

    Yum, a tasty haiku! I also love the concrete aspect of lines 2 and 3, Mary. They are long and almost identical in length – just like two corn on the cob on their holders!
