Haiku is to poetry as espresso is to coffee.

praised by a novice,
she asks, "What do you think
I am – a saint?"

Attributed to Teresa of Avila. Today (October 15) is her feast day.

Teresa can take most of the credit for the humor, Frank.

Indeed she has, Gillena; a woman for all seasons.

Well, as I told Frank, I had lots of help from St. Teresa.
