Having such an interest in Astrology I really appreciate these Haikus. Loved the too hot for comfort and too hot to handle with Mercury and Venus, and the wit with Mars and all of the planets are written about so creatively. Certainly a treat to read from such an experienced poet. 10 love Karin

This is so witty and intuitive, and has just the perfect juicy tidbit about each planet.

John, it's nice. Making a haiku on planets as the basis is a good idea. All the paragraphs telling about planet are well penned, and this haiku is fix to be scored ten, well done. i love this poem.

Any one who can supply Ms Masterman with a juicy tidbit is alright by me, but be careful John she doesn't trap you down at the Mars Bar..........10
