Haiku is to poetry as espresso is to coffee.

on the way
to the dentist's office
the scent of fennel

Posted, just minutes ago, as a comment at Juliet's blog.

I really like this one, particularly as my toothpaste is fennel flavoured!

fennel gives the dentist's visit all kinds of interesting connotations

Fennel-flavored toothpaste, Juliet? Exotic!

Thanks, Gillena. That's the kind of response I like: placing my ku in the context of your experience.

What I'd hoped, Polona. Thanks for the visit.

By the way, in the post to which this is a response, the scent of fennel followed the visit to the dentist. It struck me, though, that the scent might provide a distraction from thought of the dentist while one is on the way. Otherwise, the words of the ku are pretty much as found.
