I couldn't resist using Issa's haiku as a mentor text. It's so unlike any other Issa haiku that I've received in my email inbox via Daily Issa. 

What type are you? What can you learn about yourself through your "rather haves?"

    LOVE this post, Mary Lee! I was intrigued by that poem when it landed in my mailbox this week, too. Thanks for sharing all of these!
