  8. 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...

  18. Could have visited
    earlier and saved myself
    time and energy!

    Just perfect … precisely the reminder I needed this morning as I 'struggled' with my thoughts.
    Hugs and blessings,

  19. 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. :)
