  1. Sabrina, I love your rendition of Haiku and the sort of cynical side projected, which provides a certain humorous outlook on the realities of life........ Sheri

  2. 'Menapausal shopping carts' - great line! Kristina

  3. It's so good to have you at Whispers Sabrina! So happy to see you already have two wonderful comments. If you have any questions, please let me know. Keep your talent shining. Congratulations on your writing successes.


  4. I agree with Kristina - great line, 'Menapausal shopping carts'. Very unique and deep! Way to go...

  5. Dear Sabrina -

    Both of these Haiku are wonderful. HOWEVER, the second is stupendous. Bullfighting in a health food store cracked me up. Oh forget it - each line delivers it's own punch. I love day moon/missing haiku. More more.


  6. Hi Sabrina,

    What great wit you have! I absolutely adore the line about the "menopausal shopping cart." Brilliant haiku! Best wishes, Carolyn

  7. Went to Walmart just today
    Where is a parking spot I say
    Every one full of shopping carts.

    We need more Haiku on Whispers Sabrina, thanks for posting these gems.
