TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge – Treats

Not sure if it is an Aussie thing but a tin of "Quality Street" chocolates was the ultimate in indulgence at Christmas time.

Sparkling treasure

Tempting me relentlessly

To just take one…two…

If it is chocolate it must be good. We all have treats now and then and this box of chocolates was irresistible. Funny how a lump of brown stuff wrapped in cheap tinsel can be so tempting.

Thankfully I had the willpower to take the photograph before I scoffed the lot.

Last week’s prompt “Garden”

caused a wondrous flowering

of most lush haiku.

Did you see what I did there?

Lady Lee Manila started us off with two lovely haiku and some beautiful garden photography.

Edwina’s Episodes has a wonderful photograph of great artistry and matched it with a great haiku this week.

Tucked into a Corner has the pastoral spirit in 3 wonderful haikus this week.

Elusive Trope has composed a right royal haiku this week match to a lovely shot of a formal garden.

Kate Martyn’s haiku is a beautiful interpretation of her idyllic image. Sigh!

J Lapis has trancended the Haiku form with this set of “cascading haiku” which use the last line of the previous haiku as the start for the next. Brilliant.

And lastly but not leastly, Pat B has written haiku of Biblical proportions here!

    1. So glad you are enjoying the prompts and sorry for taking a while to reply. Family matters have come between me and my blog. Sigh. 🙂


        1. Much appreciated. Just one’s family needs time sometimes, but I am a firm believer in prayers for the world. Goodness knows it (we) need/s them. Bless you!
