    itsy-bitsy haiku

    think koa's seen this on The Crossed Keys (no not the wedding site). also isagel. wish i could get to your site ihrocks, but comp isn't behaving...this is a few months old. almost used it for my sig but that would be annoying.
    (historical note: wrote this after leaving forum as az. had stopped writing. realized one day would have to again, to my dismay at the time.)


    …dragging bruised arteries from this vessel - from a picture in my head of light green pottery on a bureau, ordinarily a safe place to cloister one's dishes/wishes:

    blood spills the secrets
    run out my heart cannot hide
    in this tilted bowl

    Cool

    As I think and type,
    I wonder what will be ripe
    for posting Haiku.

    I like the line in italics best, but it's all good.

    Does anyone know what is going on in this thread? Or is it another haiku thread that we have overlooked? **blinks in wonder**

    Seems to me it was Amuse who tried to start it a long time ago,
    ending with:
    in this tilted bowl (I`ll pick that one up):
    lots of flowers used to be
    now there are just snails

    (it should maybe be BUT instead of just?)

    now there are just snails

    moist skin slithering
    silvery threads following
    slow nature movements

    their bodies like tongues
    lapping up the world around
    watch them as they glide

    gentle receptors
    delicately seek ahead
    stretched antenna eyes
