Sensuous imagery, enjah.

Thanks, Vaughn. I hoped it would have that effect.

Great juxtapostion Bill, I really enjoyed this one. This is one I can truly identify with. I think the "Aha" in this one, unfortunately, could be overlooked. Ironically, considering the content of the poem, this could be apropos.

Thanks, Collin. I see what you mean about the "aha," but it's a risk I'm prepared to run.

Glad you see the layers, polona.

Don't know if my sympathies reach all the way to worms, tikkis, but I'm workin' on it.

floots, if I ever figure out what's on my mind, I'll let you know.

In Russia autumn starts with Apple Spas - the ritual of blessing of the apples. Wonderful haiku
