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”
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!

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.
