    Ha! I still think you a romantic at heart though you failed to bark at trees and get to the root of the problem but I am sure you will turn over a new leaf and try again. I truly think trying French on them might work- trees are such a shady lot. Thank you for cheering me up. (Report)Reply

    Aha! Trees that leave one with a barking laugh! Thank you so much, Susan.

    Brilliant, Fran! Your observation deserves its own line in a senryu. Many thanks!

    M.J., no matter my mood, your poetry never disappoints! It makes me laugh. It inspires me. It challenges me. And when I'm having a stressful week, like this one, it uplifts me. Tres bien! Et Merci Beaucoup! (Report)Reply
