Anyone who can use the word juxtaposition correctly in a haiku deserves respect.
Great haiku. That said, hope things are looking up soon! :)
@colleen - one of my days this week could have gone better, but it's all good@Kouji - yep, loved Japan much!@lilacspecs - aw, thanks, I was amazed the word fit@mel - thanks, I'm glad to be smiling
Even when things are rough, it sounds as if you stay in control. Lovely haiku!
Fantastic work here. Not only (as Lilac mentioned) did you get the word juxtapostition into a haiku, but the image along with it is perfect. Something I totally understand.Just looking at your quit counter at the top. I am well impressed. I can only boast 6 weeks right now...
So beautiful! So cute!
living through the heart... absolutely beautiful!
Beautiful picture and the well written haiku just makes it even better! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
As shadow - so am I - loving the "living through the heart"
Your last line is so true. Simultaneous tears and laughter happens to me a lot. :)

I completely agree with lilacspecs! Hi Maggie, I just had to stop by and say my laffy taffy ku for the day is because of a pregnancy craving that I have had all week. :)

I can't wait to read it when I get on the eal computer. anyway, still kudos on the pound! high five! and no you don't have to sign linky-only if you wanna share a post for ftf.
