That hideous thing
Turning us with each vile ring
Into Pavlov’s dogs
I cannot photograph this artistically. I have never been one to delight in blabbing for hours on this loathsome device, supersaturated with the stale breathings and greasy pawings of others and the Pavlovian response of instant dread when I hear the ring. As I get older I find the phone is usually going to ring for a few reasons only…
- Someone wants to sell me something
- Someone wants me to donate something
- Someone wants so scam me
- Someone wants to tell me something horrifying
- Someone has died
None of these outcomes endear me to the phone as you can well imagine.
Perhaps you have fonder attachments to this wonder of modern communication. Do not be put off by my fear of the object. I would love to know your own “connection” with the telephone in your life.
Last week’s prompt “mug” lead to a number of clever and creative haiku. Do check them out!
Tucked into a Corner starts the collection with three mugs of delicious beverages.
Judy of the new and vibrant themed “Edwina’s Episodes” has a hint for the brain dead here. Great fun as always. 🙂
Kat Myrman has made mugs of us all with this clever triplet of mugs. Love it!
3 meaningful mugs from Kia this week with a great photo accompanying.
Reminders of the days of sippy cups and the deeper meaning of mugs from Life Home and Away this week. Great stuff!
The wonderful cascading form used expertly by Azul of “Behind distant doors” will give you an excellent idea of how to move the prompt into a very different direction.
Please feel free to join in by adding a link to your own haiku post inspired by the photo prompt. Always love to see new editions. You can check out some of the past challenges by clicking here
