Sounds like a first date to me 🙂 Reply Thanks, yeah, see what you mean! 🙂 Reply It is funny how people read different things into poetry. Reply What a wonderful illustration of ‘childhood fears’. And Doctor Who is back on our screens, too! Reply Wonder who the next one will be? My money is on Daniel Radcliffe … Reply I love the universality of this haiku! It can apply to all the phases: childhood, first date (@Christine, @stoneyfish) or new kid in class, couple while getting married, divorcing couple, India and Pakistan, America and Russia (side by side in strength not proximity), Britain and Europe. Reply Wow … quite a list, especially as I was only thinking of those two little cartoons! I suppose any microcosm can be linked to any macrocosm … and I’ve just thought about the US battle-fleet sabre-rattling near North Korea! Maybe it is all as simple as seventeen syllables … Reply 😄👍Is that why it qualifies to be a kids video game? Reply Ha, wonder if some of these people ever grow up … Reply Short and simple things sometimes say a lot of things. Great one. Reply Glad you liked it. Less, they say, is more … Reply Or dominance, if the glass is half empty. I really like the reassurance interpretation, however. Good one, Dave. Now I am going to go check under my bed! –Curt Reply Cheers, Curt, at least we don’t have to hide under ours … Reply 🙂 Not yet… Reply Waiting for a sign.. perhaps.. you say so much in only a few words and that’s the sign of a great writer! Reply I wish … sometimes I think I’m running out of words … but your compliment is very encouraging, nonetheless! Reply When there’s nothing to fear, we seem to invent something. Still to prefer, though. Reply Indeed … and when there’s much to fear, we seem to block it out – even though it will give us more problems down the line!
