      Aubrey,

      Yes, even the Hakius take me at least 40 minutes or so to edit and write! LOL

      I bet that was hard to come up with, buddy. Using so few words has to be difficult! Good job, buddy. :)

      LOL...The question to REALLY ask is whether I'm standing on my feet, or on my head...changes the visual, doesn't it?!

      Josh,

      A very beautiful haiku. You did amazingly well on limericks and doing the same here. Voted up and awesome. Its just wonderful how three lines can bring out such powerful emotions and such amazing pictures the nature presents.

      (I am sending u my limerick once more in case u haven't received it please check your mail.)

      :) Mandar
