Not strictly traditional Haiku
Ah Ha! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I have mentioned (more than once, recently) that I need to write about disappointment..... But the word doesn't make sense to me. It's origin escapes me, a much better word must exist for the meaning we have associated with it. You have captured it concretely so that I may tolerate it....Disgusted and disillusioned,Dianne
