  1. This made me smile – especially because Aureaola sounds and looks like Areola. Imagine! It sounds like you are making an analogy – her laughter is like a cascade of Aureola. This isn’t something that classical haiku do (not that one should always model classical haiku). Perhaps something a little more unexpected (?)

    • Patrick, I love this critique and the critic! Actually, the original haiku is this:

      a cascade of Aureola
      among the rocks, a frog

      … which I imagine you’d want pared down to

      a cascade of Aureola
      among the rocks–
      a croak

      Please do stay!!!
