haiku wednesday - April 23, 2008

This week's words are
stop
reflected
picture



it makes my heart stop
years reflected in her smile
picture of autumn


picture tot on trike
reflected in chrome terror
why did you not stop?


she's in the picture
background mirror reflected
it has to stop, now

Two days only! Visit the Evil Editor Anniversary Party! Especially you poets. Two poetry contests, of which I am judge (dubbed "poet lariat" for these two days). Hie your asses over there and send in some pomes, dudes and dudettes.

I'm guessing the words are actually
stop
reflected
picture?

I always enjoy reading your haiku...you manage to take these 3 words and paint a different picture each time.

Three pictures painted with perfectly placed strokes.

D'oh! Thanks, Jane. Moving too quickly with too little coffee this morning. I've fixed it now.

Sherry/cherie: thanks! I try to vary it. Had a little trouble with these today, but I'm not sure why.

marcia, you're too kind. :-)

The first one is melancholy, but that second one... oh man. Heart stopper.

Michelle Johnson said...

Love that second haiku because it reminds me of little blue tricycle. What fun I had with that thing. Thanks for allowing me a trip down memory lane.

And, I agree the first haiku (posted at 3WW) and here are sad. I feel their is a loss where the heart's been unable to mend. Thanks for sharing your haiku. Have a nice day.

Sad and scary but always well-done!

tumblewords said...

Oh, these are so well done! Each one so different!

It's amazing how you tell such riveting tales in so few words.

Did I leave my comment? My computer just gliched!! Well if I didn't I said something eloquent, along the lines of thanking you in sharing three different prismatic views in the lives of three very different words. It sounded better the first time!

It's amazing the so different pictures you painted using the same words

The "chrome terror" got me.

Great angles of thought and emotions from 3 little words.
