Prompt Word – “Bud”
How much true beauty
Waiting for the right moment
Within a small bud
I am bursting with excitement for soon I will be winging my way to pastures new. You will notice less activity here on “Life is too short for bad wine” for a while as I hope to be consuming (in sensible moderation of course) quantities of good French wine and drinking in the wonders of Europe. TJ’s Haiku will go on! (provided the WiFi works!)
If you would like to follow my adventures then pop over to my new blog, “The Meeple Letters” (Click Here) and I hope you will enjoy a laugh as we wend our merry way. There will be plenty of reviews of the places we visit too, so check it out if you are thinking of visiting Oxford, Italy and France in the near future!
Here is a summary of last week’s great haiku from around the globe in response to the prompt “Edge”
Ritu up first this week with a riverside reflection and the fabric of the matter. Lovely
Kat Myrman is on edge here with a wonderful couple of takes on the prompt.
Freya has a deep message here with a very striking image and a very beautifully crafted haiku pair.
Hélène Vaillant has us on the brink with a lovely image and an “edgy” haiku.
Ramblings of a Writer comes with a wise warning in haiku form this week.
Neel has a wonderful haiku here with love balancing on a knife’s edge. Very clever imagery!
I love the sense of drama in Tucked Into a Corner’s triplet of haiku this week. You will too!
Image and Word has us on the edge between life and the other thing. Very good writing.
Janet of On the Land has me with the photos let alone the haiku. It’s fluffy bunnies-a-go-go here this week.
Welcome to Stutter-Stepping Heart with a chain of haiku twirling pirouettes on a knife’s edge. Wonderful.
