Haiku is to poetry as espresso is to coffee.

I wrote this a while ago. A recent comment from floots has reminded me of it.

Hi Bill. Thanks for visiting me, and leading me over here. Great stuff. Need to browse a while.

Thanks for sharing your 'trumpet' - I immediatly thought of a recent haiku by John (http://zenspeug.blogspot.com/) - on Feb 28th - more daffodil trumpets. Interesting how our ideas collide but fly in different directions too.

It's that time, Jem. As I mentioned, it was floots's comment that he was taking pictures of daffodils that led me to take this one out of the file.
