TJ’s Household Haiku

Come to the window

Cascades of golden sorrow

Heart-sore Rapunzel

Prompt words for this week:  “Window and Heart”

Forgive me my dear fellow Haikuists. I’m back!

Bienvenue to you haiku enthusiasts out there. This image of the peculiar 15th centruy remnant in the midst of busy Paris always intrigues me given that it looks like a fairy tale castle surrounded by 19th and 20th Century architecture.

Many thanks to all those who converted the prompts  of “Shiver and Rain” from last week into another compilation of Haikuey goodness.

As always, apologies in advance if I should be so inept as to miss anyone in the roundup. Always let me know and I will add you in ASAP.

    1. What a magnificent collection. I love how the re-ordering creates such different perspectives. I am so flattered that you took such time to create these for the challenge. Thank you friend! TJ


      1. Thanks.

        I believe that every country has a “pet” natural disaster whether it’s cyclones/hurricanes, flooding, sandstorms, earthquakes or tornados. I worry about the people who are going to be getting a direct hit — people who, until a few days ago — didn’t know Irma was targeting them.

        1. So sorry not to reply sooner! I am getting back on board again with the Wednesday Gratitudes from next week. Hope you are keeping well and thriving.


          1. Hoping you have the support and love you need to get you through this time. Will look forward to enjoying your writing again when you are ready to get back to blogging. Be gentle to yourself and take the time you need to just “be” for a while if you can. Much love to you.

  1. Hi Tim. I’m back. Recuperating from a bad case of jet lag from a trip to Kauai, Hawaii. Loved “cascades of golden sorrow.” Magnificent poetics. I’ll post my entry soon. 🙂

          1. That is something that makes you appreciate the moment for sure. I am off for a few day soon to Albany, a lovely town by the sea so that will give me chance to slow down a bit. 🙂
