  12. What a wonderful haiku! I just started reading The Poetry Home Repair Manual: Practical Advice for Beginning Poets by Ted Kooser, and your haiku is an excellent illustration of a point he makes early in his book. I don't have it in front of me, but basically it said that the best poems make sure that you'll never look at something in the same way again. And that poem does that with tall grass.
