      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
