An engaging video, Alan. You have used some interesting words that you have come across.
Your final verse I found quite emotional even though you have given the listener the opportunity to rework your verse.
My first thoughts were of poverty during childhood, a lost and found happiness, something which was found within your third line.

morning, Alan

first, i got the ebook. thanks to everybody who helped make it happen.

secondly, i watched your reading. imaginative to say the least. i really liked that you commented. and you made this texas gal look up 'jumble sale.'

Many thanks Lorraine!

Yes, 'jumble' works well in this context as the boy is jumbled up (as many teenagers can be) and thus other terms wouldn't carry that parallel suggestion.

Thanks for enjoying the reading and how I presented my comments about each haiku. The book was certainly a labour of love between all three editors!

warm regards,
Alan
