The OED word of the day for the erasure poem|commentary is another doozy: 'doosra.' That would be a delivery by a cricket off-bowler and means "the other one" in Urdu. In case you were wondering.

The plant is a very cool bromeliad in the conservatory at Volunteer Park in Seattle.

The painting is lovely. The haiku gives me a bitter smile, but spot on. Again, your post makes me wiser, regarding the lexicon. Amazing!

Thanks, Sadami. We'll all have quite an expanded vocabulary by the end of this! I don't know how I'll ever work, "What a numpty he was to bowl a doosra!" into a conversation, but it's good to have goals! :)

And I think I'll go back and draw more bromeliads. They are quite strange & wonderful creatures...
