The silly season…
Buddha just sees still water
in a world gone mad.
Every third Saturday of the month, adollyciousirony posts an image from her Art Game and invites folk, who feel so inspired, to write a Haiku based on what they see on the image. The above picture is number three in this wonderful game.

Hahaha, right , it seem like the world has gone mad 🙂 Thanks for joining in!
Great haiku for the photo!
Thanks, Naomi. I really love that photo. So much to choose from. Maybe several hundred potential haikus hidden there.
That goes brilliantly with the photo. I wouldn’t have known where to start!
Thanks 🙂 I decided to zoom in on the one bit of stillness in this wonderful picture, as I’d never have done justice to all the action, excitement, & colour in seventeen syllables.
Why not have a go? I challenge you to write a Haiku. I don’t believe in the words can’t or never 😉
I had one published once.
Nude and numb under
Its white coat, the tree awaits
Spring’s warm, gentle kiss.
Lovely. Keep writing them.
Thanks Lady Marilyn… it really is a lovely haiku 🙂
