  1. Great metaphor! And so true!

  2. And so true about that stalking, Cathy! My daughter (a long time ago) heard someone say that spring was here because they saw a dandelion). She was sad because she wanted to see one too, but thought it was the 'real' thing-a lion! Your poem reminded me of that story. Beautifully done metaphor!

  3. My 7th grade haiku crazy boys will love this one, as do I! Perfect metaphor for this wild garden beast!
