ha! like your sense of onservation, Dalloway :)wishes, devika
A great observation...
after a moment of confusion came the aha! moment :)yes, great observation
Dalloway, 11 too, is so parallel to the long grass that it (as well) is as un-seen... as the legs and necks of the IbIs. Corduroy? Lovit! _m[I scribbled something years ago "a pine grove, their trunks as parallel as corduroy"]
i can imagine from a distance a pine grove would look like corduroy
Dalloway,This is a wonderful haiku. I'm sorry I haven't been around. My mother is visiting from Germany and I have been taking somewhat of respite. I have also been reading Basho. I feel as though I have forgotten how to write Haiku. Thank you for yours.
Thanks all.No need to apologise Patrick. Youre welcome to visit any time youre free. I know exactly what you mean. I froze after reading one too many excellent haiku last week - and http://tinyurl.com/fkaPsyku It too shall pass, grasshopper. You write lovely stuff.

Thanks for taking the time to write something.
