Thanks for reading!

Author's Notes: The great Gerard DiLeo challenged me to write a 5.7.5 format senryu/haiku with just three words. This is my entry? I had two others to choose from too that I might publish at a later date. I have also done a few in the past...because...you know it's not hard enough lol.

Anyway, Gerard's wonderful piece can be viewed below and you should also check out his profile for more creative and imaginative writing.
