This got me googling Woodford Square. What a fascinating history. Loved the way you placed the Golden Poui (which, I gather from my googling - in very much associated with Port of Spain) against that history, here. This is very cleverly crafted and - really - a stunning haiku.

Blogger dsnake1 said...

yes, these flowers would distract anyone passing by. what a lovely haiku. :)
i had to look up "poui", whether it is comparable to our rain trees. the poui definitely flowers better, by a long mile.

I’m impressed, I have to say. Actually not often do I encounter a weblog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you've hit the nail on the head. Your idea is excellent; the problem is something that not enough people are talking intelligently about. I am very joyful that I stumbled throughout this in my search for something regarding this. online casino gambling
