Haiku Monday Winner: Chalk

Very sorry for the delay, my Haiku Monday friends.  Technology issues; but the $22 counterfeit Mac charger that my brother ordered for me before he headed to Tijuana for his gastric bypass surgery finally came.

I do still love HM, and I absolutely adored each and every entry this week!  Very thoughtful and varying takes on the theme.   Thank you all so much for playing.  I've said it before: it is fun to host, but very hard to judge.  I did make comments on my previous blog; so in the interest of shortening the suspense:

I am giving two awards today:

Best image: for "superman flies free" to Corey Jo.  Adorable.

Haiku Monday Winner:

a poof of chalk cloud
rises up from the line; Ha!
double fault, game match


This was a tight story and perfect chalk dust sensory overload: like when the nuns used to have you clean the blackboards and then you'd clap the erasers together. I could taste the chalky cloud.

Congrats, Chicky!    And everyone!

Haiku Monday: Chalk

Welcome to Haiku Monday; where, like the last rose of summer, we appear bedraggled and at the end of our days--but it's just because we are resting for the renaissance on the horizon!

This week's theme is "Chalk".

The Haiku Components:
  •                                                       Three lines:
Five syllables
Seven syllables
Five syllables
  • kigo  - the season word, referring to seasons of the year.

  • kiregi -  the *cut* word, which refers to the abrupt change between the two meanings or points of view of the poem.
  • An image (not a component of regular haiku, but apt images will count towards winner points.)
Please submit two for judging in the comments, and if you have an image, please link to it.  Deadline is midnight, Pacific Time on Monday, October 22.
Good luck!  I look forward to reading your treasures.

Haiku Monday: Obsession

Your words, in amber;
forever true, always mine.
My words, just the wind.
