a shaded marsh

    in keeping with david woody's assumption, i must stay on track, commentaries to make...

    i'll keep this one brief; the above is a sentence, though it could have read, "the crane highsteps carefully through, in, around, the shaded marsh; with no juxtapose, being continuous, with no break in action, nor is a haiku.

    akin more to an explanation...

    almost forgot, "in my opinion"

    raised drain walls
    a crane trails
    above the water

    drips of nectar
    from the umbrella tree blossoms --
    bee's ecstatic flight
