I just saw the movie 'Miss Potter', on TV. I'm sure Beatrix had all these images in her mind (and eyes) when creating Peter Rabbit(etc).

Never had a rabbit as a pet. Infact, I've never had any pets. I don't THINK there's anything wrong with me :-)

wonderful! you paint a great, vivid picture of these three adorable rabbits. They breathe in this poem, and yet you write so sparingly - there is nothing useless or superfluous or anything that doesn't aid the depiction of these characters, for you do, after all, treat them like characters. marvellous.

What a pleasant way to say it. Loved them.

Running wild through a golf course is an amusing idea.

I love your haikus. It is such a great form of peotry.

Never had a bunny rabbit for a pet but when we take our dog walking on the local golf course, he loves to chase the hares even though they are always too fast for him. They always spot him way before he sees them.

Anywho, I wrote three poems for this entry : Dogs of War, Two Pets and My Dog Tom

Oh Juliet, how wonderful! We had rabbits for years. Our last two were named, James (Jim-Bo) and Hazel. You are too you to remember "Upstairs Downstairs" on Masterpiece Theater but my then husband and I loved it. I think it is now on DVD. Your Haikus are great!

love you, Melanie
