Thanks Frank, I just recently learned how to write these from Hyphenbird's description of what a Haiku is and I want to keep writing them all the time. A new addiction.

Beautiful Susan. I didn't know until yesterday that Haiku is about seasons only. My Gamblers should be a Senryu instead of Haiku. I'm learning. I love it. I'm counting syllables in my sleep..LOL

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! The syllable count is perfect, the lines clean and concise and the subject matter is close to the heart. Perfect in every way, even the photo.
