    Pete, I guess most of us suffer from the same problem. I have a neighbor named Pete Lee, married to Pat. I've made a copy of your ku to send to them

    I really liked this, as it is such a shared experience.

    I didn't find it sad at all, it's just a plain simple haiku observation, and they are so often the better haiku, as this is.
