    He can turn on a dime from comedy to tragedy and back again from one scene to the next. Kind of like life, huh? And Lesson One- -never turn your back on Iago. He could give the snake in the Garden of Eden a lesson in sneakiness. Like your write very much. (Report)Reply

    Thank you! And you reminded me....The Bard just never wrote simple characters....No one is one-dimensional...not even that 'snake' Iago...Thank you so much, Susan.

    Many thanks, Muhammad. There are times, I think, the lines are blurred.

    Experiencing tragedy, and maintaining a sense of humour, is an ideal we should all strive for. M.J., another brilliant Senryu! (Report)Reply

    Thank you, Richard! I pity those who have the experience but cannot maintain the vision to seek out the lesson.
