Well, Vaughn and floots, this seems tobe doing what it's supposed to.

By the way, this one got started when my friend Josh (see the first comment) owned up to a prejudice agianst haiku that include the phrase "the space between."

I could feel the wind when I saw it, Juliet.

Vaughn, "the space between" has become an earworm. I'm constantly playing with it in my mind. And it's all Josh's fault.

...and I suppose we can also feel the time-space between, like the time between posting and replying.

I suppose the length of the skirt doesn't (have to) matter here, although I do find it an interesting point.

Yes we can, Vaughn.

Right, Ella, it doesn't (have to) matter, but I remain in awe of the courage of women.
