nice jux; Good one, Bill...and congratulations :)

On a side note, our old people say, don't speak about your dreams...the chance of them becoming true are less; as if someone wants the dreams to come true...dreams are beautiful when they stay as dreams :)

__With new buds, the -dream- of buds fades into realism; realism, is the prime value of our dreams.
__Who would expect less than first, Bill? A grand haiku, such complex simplicity! _m
