  4. This is a great take on the photo prompt — complete with the double entendre on the the "Fin" you often use to end your posts.

  11. Dear Joanny: The "Lotus Cafe and Cardroom" looks like a funky cybercafe! I think I may have relatives in Oregon, near Portland; reminds me of Bobby Sherman, what was that tv show called; I watched it religiously in the 60's. Seven Brides for Seven Women theme. With "Biddy". Think my relative (distant) is a milliner. The trout placement so catchy!Your Hiaku poem is superb! Fluent and flowing zen-like ocean water. Tell me more about the pics! Where are these fascinating places located; in some ways they look oddly familiar!

  12. Your creativity is a gift. I second what others said about the appropriateness of the photos and of the words, and the cleverness of "Fin."

  15. Cracking pictures - and that salmon (I think it's a salmon I'll have to confirm with hubby!) through the wall is magic! I've had to download it.....(hope you don't mind).

    And what a perfect Magpie ending. So succinctly and wittingly done!

  20. Joanny,
    The zen of this haiku carrys the truth of nature. I'm reminded to take the time to observe and heed the messages all around us.
