    This isn't "A-typical" of my style $$RICH$$ one~ :) I wish I had it like that (to be able to deem something as mine, that is) however, I was sharing with Joyce yet another variation or 'spin-off' of a haiku -- called a "haikai" having it's own specifications within the traditional 5-7-5 scheme... which is a portugese style of haiku/haikai named after this famous writer Guilherme de Almeida....

    Thanks for the read dear one :)
