Three Days of Tweet #Haikus

I wanted to post three days of my #Haikus from Twitter formatted, edited and with links to the pictures.  Not only can I get them into columns, but there seems to be an extra space between each line, so this will be an unpleasant blog-post.  If you struggle though, thanks so much.  I am sorry I’ve been so derelict in my updating, but life is now. (HMMM, sounds like a Haiku)

Growing prime anxiety/
