Beautiful (global recession inspired?:)

Thanks, Beatrice. We DID have a massive layoff at work yesterday. I am a fortunate, but saddened survivor.

I am also fortunate to have two daughters, so clothes get recycled, to the chagrin of the younger. :-)

What a wonderful haiku. It's perfect on every level. Extremely well-crafted, and giving us that special 'wordlessness' that haiku can give, but still lend so many levels of understanding.

This is a very memorable haiku.

I'm sorry that so many of your collegues have been laid off.

Thanks for your kind praise, Alan. A real-life vignette.
