For the Love of Haiku

Bitter angel trapped.
Tricked by slippery smiles,
power of ascent gone.

Check out July’s haiku fun at courtesy of that veritable blogging powerhouse, adollyciousirony. Also, thank you to the Art Game participants who, as usual, have created an entertaining and complex picture for us minimalist poets to interpret.

    1. Thank you, Naomi:-) The idea doesn’t necessarily happen that quickly for me with haiku – I guess that’s why it’s considered a form of meditation. I’ll ponder a picture, scene, or the minute details of something for ages in my mind, then there’s that moment of enlightenment – it’s almost like a light coming on when everything falls into place and I know exactly which words will do the image justice.
