The Handyman's Waterloo

This haiku is written as a part of the Haiku Horizons weekly challenge.  This haiku was created around the word, "level".  This is my first foray into this particular challenge.  I hope you enjoy it. :)

    1. Originally, I thought about emotions and justice but, for my first foray on this website, I didn't want to appear too heavy-handed, if you know what I mean?, :) I am happy you enjoyed my first haiku for you.

  6. it's great, and I love that you are writing more often. Seeing you show up in my email makes me smile because I adore your words and way of looking at the world very much.

    1. Thank you for finding me here. I love having my Trifecta pals connecting outside of Trifecta. I am hoping that losing the comforting protection of Trifecta will force me, as it were, out into the real world. I am not looking for tons of challenges but, developing more discipline with how often I write, is an important next step for me. I am glad that I found this haiku challenge and that I found you here, too. :)
