Hmmm... I don't think I get it. Never have been able to get poems, but it doesn't stop me from trying.

Fantastic haiku.

So much for a reader to delve into because it doesn't direct us, it empowers us to work it out for ourselves.

I'm still puzzling over "short funeral", and wonder if it's for a pet organised by mostly children and an adult or two.

If I'm wrong, the poem is still powerful enough to have delivered a meaningful feeling without blurting it out, and allowing me to have my own meaning.

I only wish political democracy was so democratic. ;-)

How do you do it... incredible connections and these wonderful, poignant moments pinned down and captured.

I like this. Sad tale of a quick, funeral over so quickly, the grave-diggers are still supping/smoking?
It'll be slightly foggy too...
