Mindlovemisery's Menagerie

A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Heading Haiku With HA

Vladimir Fedotko

Anmol is in the process of a move and does not have internet service yet. This week I am giving you a photograph for inspiration. When I look at this photo I see a beautiful poised woman, waiting for guests that will never arrive. The drawing behind her suggests impatience and the sad clock a kind of devastation. The kitten might represent youth or perhaps loneliness/a need for attention, since she is ignoring the kitten may be she has taken the people in her life for granted (hence their absence). Or maybe she has neglected “fun”. I could look at this all day and come up with interpretations. Your job is to write about whatever aspect of the photo that you find inspiring whether it is beauty, aging, youth, parties, impatience etc.

      Thanks Georgia with the haiku prompts I always get the feeling I make them sound harder/more intimidating than they are. This is a very simple one but alas I always make it sound like I want all the answers to life and death or something.
