TJ’s Household Haiku – Tap

Tap at the Mont St Michel

In the hot summer

The water hits the parched earth

Drip, drip, drip, drip, drip

It’s Saturday again! Naturally I would like to claim that this is my bathroom tap but as that is far from picturesque I have used a photo I took of a tap on a wall at the Mont St Michel. I rather like the fact that such a prosaic object projects out of the mouth of a carved lion and is embellished with a royal crest. “May one use the royal tap your majesty?”

If this prompt “turns you on!” (get it?) and you would like to pour out your creative soul (get it?) then just let your haiku juices flow (get it?) and add a link to your haiku post in the comments section by clicking on the black speech bubble at the end of the post. Cheap puns are also highly appreciated!

Thanks to the creative people who responded to last week’s prompt “Containers”

Japanese Nesting dolls
A whole lifetime of dolls was within

Bastet of Bastet and Sekhmet’s Library was first in with a coffre de mémoire. A great haiku and lovely photo.

Kat Myrman from Like Mercury Colliding has come up with three different types of perspective for containers and included a beautiful image too.

Judy of Edwina’s Episodes had knitted together a charming haiku in homage to her crafty container.

Muse Cruise has combined a range of beautiful container imagery with matching haiku in this impressive boxed set.

Lady Lee Manila has the recipe for happiness in her containers.

Elusive Trope has found an Aussie container with contentious contents. A great haiku!

The Recovering Know it All has packed away a host of memories in this collection of well crafted haiku.

Not content with this foray into haiku-land we find another library of haiku to enjoy. Many thanks!

Please do not hesitate to let me know if I have missed any link and I will add it as soon as I can.

    1. I am so delighted that you are enjoying participating. I am certainly enjoying your poetry! This weeks effort is no exception. 3 wonderful and innovative takes on the prompt. I can’t decide which I like more. Perhaps the maple syrup because I love maple syrup.

        1. Apologies for the delayed responses at times. The time difference is about 12 hours ahead here so sometimes I don’t get to replies for a while. Keep in touch! Best wishes. TJ

          1. No problem at all for the delay. That’s why originally I did the saturday night post with the cure video on my Friday night

        1. You have done absolutely the right thing. The prompt can be taken any way you like and the more creative the better. The best haiku take our minds on off-beaten tracks so yours is particularly good. Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions at any time. Thanks again for your creativity! TJ
