    Hee hee you've bowled me a googlie! Clever and well obseerved and transformed as usual by your way of seeing things...you never state the obvious... obviously! I like the twists you put on things. A 10! Howzat! Liked the way you incorporated all the cricket terms... it made me laugh. I didn't know if I was a ladybird being knocked off of a leaf by a big fat dropp of water or a fellow poet reading a haiku!

    love Gina XXX
