    Agree with both comments. It's nice to have imagery "a bit different" too!

    Thanks Bill, neighbor H. Gene, and Alan for all your thoughts.

    Highly imaginative, evocative, effective.

    I'm just catching up after having been unavoidably away from tinywords for several months, & am surprised to discover that such a wonderful haiku received so few responses. But the few were of high quality, which counts immensely.

    sliding cross crumpled sheets--

    I once saw a small fish frozen in the ice, but this adds a lot more to that experience.
