Caught in a whirlwind
Life makes us all so giddy
Even the Earth spins
Prompt Words: Earth and Whirlwind
Hi ho Haiku devotees.
I know, I know. It has been two weeks since the last prompt.
Well, here’s the thing. Life has been pretty frantic lately for yours truly so I have to try to rebalance myself a bit. I love to read and feature every haiku and I don’t want to feel I am doing you an injustice by having to scramble through your wonderful poetry at the last minute so, for the time being, the challenge will be a fortnightly affair. I hope this won’t put you off joining in and any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
About the photo: The Museum of Modern Art in Paris is not only free to visit but is a wonder of 1930s modern architecture filled with wonderful, vibrant artworks. This is a photo of a work by Delaunay and, in real life is a massive canvas place on a wall by itself. I just love the colour and movement. Amazingly very few tourists seem to visit the Museum. It also affords one of the most spectacular views of the Eiffel Tower across the Seine. Well worth the time if you are in Paris.
