Very nice one,Nalini. This Haiku has only 9 syllables. What form is this? Usually they have 17, right?

I like this haiku...there is so much you can read between the lizard's eyes. Nicely done.

Ha ha.. I found this funny and observantmax at the same time.

@saras...pl read 'how to write a haiku' for info...the syllable count is for the Japanese language which is quite different from the English one...moreover rules do change with time...thanks for the visit...and another thing, in a haiku, one shows not tells...I have not got the hang of it too well myself.

Thanks for the comments @someone sp @Tulika @The write girl...sometimes when we chance on someone or something suddenly, we do wonder what goes on in their minds...that's the basis of this haiku
