Haiku Monday: Dance

Swooping sleight of hand.
Lush charade mesmerizes;
plume insouciance.

Haiku Monday: Bayou

Forbidden embrace.
New Moon floods the fertile pool;
swollen flesh rises.

Haiku Monday Winner: Road

Well, HM friends, we had another round of excellent and diverse entries.  And then a few bonus psychic connections with Foam and Aunty's banged up feet--even though, much like Kate Moss--Aunty used a body double for her visuals--and then Karl and Csar both "On The Road to Haiku Monday": what a spectacle that would make!

Before announcing the winner, here are winners in a few other categories:

  • Best phrase: "Kerouac's Ribbon" -the Csar.  Clever, visual and melifluous.
  • Favorite phrase with one extra syllable: "Blowing in the wind tumbleweed" - cinematic, and appealed to my inner prairie romantic.  (Miss Becca, 8 syllables?)

  • Best visual and haiku match: Doom, as below.
don't leave the way, don't
what is off the path consumes
never expedition

    Most elegant and epic:  Serendipity

    Human burden beasts.
    Ancient toil, exotic trade.
    Summer tea leaf road.
    I like this, too, because drinking tea is very leisurely--while obtaining it, clearly, is not.  (Isn't that ironic...don't cha think?)
    And the winner, which melted my heart (to match everything else that the current NE heat wave has melted up in my 5th floor mantrap):  RAFA
    Heat waves warp the road
    Puddles form where reason lies
    No relief in sight
    What a visual!
    Congratulations, Rafa!
    And thank you all for playing this week!

Haiku Monday: Fire

Summer's spacious skies.
Careless flick of a Kool butt:
amber waves of grain.
