      There are lots of haiku that I really like where a character is portrayed in a setting, but what’s happening with that character is left open to all sorts of disparate interpretations. So, I wanted to try to have one of those in my own little repertoire 🙂

      Thanks, Jen – for your speechlessness!

        This was brilliant – really beautifully crafted. 🙂
