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

Heeding Haiku with HA – January 7, 2015

Click photo for Credits


Hello everyone … here we are in a New Year and we at Mindlovesmisery’s Menagerie hope that you’ve pass a great holiday season.

We are in the middle of winter here in the northern half of our planet and (lucky you) summer in the southern half.  The haiku I’d like to invite you to write today then should be done by using one of two kigo – or seasonal words:

Snowflakes – Sunflower

snowflakes tumble
covering the world in white noise
sunflower dreams

Ah yes, I cheated and used them both!  😉

You have a week to write your haiku or tanka and I’d like to invite you to tag: Heeding Haiku with HA and Mindlovesmisery’s Menagerie.  And have fun!

Ciao, Bastet!

About Georgia

I love to read...I like to write...I've travelled the world and seen the sites. I'm past my prime and feel so young, especially when near the young. I'm writing this blog, to remember, to think and to share...with the hopes that someone else will make a comment that will stimulate new thoughts and pathways. Actually, I'm a gabber, so the logical extension of gabbing is blogging! ;-)

    It’ll take a lot of effort to envision sunflowers here in the frosty North — our temps hit -10F with the wind chill. Ugh! But a cool challenge, Georgia — very nice!

      Well … actually you can choose … I just cheated using them both … but the sunflowers were for the Southern Hemisphere and the snowflakes for the Northern, but if you want to cheat too .. 😉

        You know me. I love to cheat on haiku! 😉

        Have an image in mind already…. mwah ha ha ha!!!!

        BTW — only the “cinquain” is left on that list I gave you. One is stupid (on further examination) and one’s already been done. o.O

        Darn .. I forgot your list! I’m so sorry and I’d better look and see what you’ve done so as not to hound one of your prompts … I’ve been remiss dear girls .. been reading Fry and trying to figure out how to work back into meter for the next prompt, now that the holidays are over … I thought maybe a simple iambic tetrameter maybe … Emily Dickinson as inspiration … what you think?

        I think that sounds awesome. Meter! Yay! You know I love meter! 😉 Iambic is tricky for me but I’ll give it a shot. Have been afraid to to anything more fancy than the very brief forms — it’s about time to work into the more challenging forms. 🙂

        BTW did you see Fry is getting married? 🙂

    Double BTW — the “white noise” is just awesome ….!

      Thanks … has little to do officially with a haiku … my noise is just the noise of snow … not that other white noise 😉 I’ll have a look see!

    Well, I broke the rule just a tiny bit on Sunflower. (I’m such a tiny rebel)
