Very nice!

Your haiku is truly poetry. :)

Mine . . . is a fun 5-7-5 syllable game, a way to narrate a story usually.

I enjoy your picturesque language. :)

That word "pummel" seems to scream out.

And the one winner - such incredible, wry poignancy.

Yes, those poor earthworms. Between being flooded out by the spring rains and being eaten by robins they don't know what's happening! :)
