Haiku My Heart Friday



Rebecca of Recuerda mi Corazon was

"inspired by work of the poet

and her Ruby Tuesdays

the idea of a haiku festival crept into her mind while driving to the studio.

moments later she stopped in at her favorite thrift store

and found three japanese haiku collections from the fifties.

which completely cinched the deal.

(universe talking/i am listening)

if this speaks to you please join us

haiku my heart fridays

poignant simplicity

one photograph

three lines

five, seven, five syllables

every friday. here. beginning june 25

haiku festival

(my heart and mr. linky will be waiting for you)"


So I'm posting for the first time for Rebecca's meme Haiku My Heart Friday




The mask of the clown
deeply dark and menacing...
does death lie beneath?

You've captured my feelings about masks and clowns. It is a beautiful mask, though.

Delphyne said...

Great picture and interesting question that the haiku poses! Definitely worthy of pondering...

Sarah said...

Clowns definitely invite this question! The mask is beautiful but menacing.

mary my ruby tuesday inspiration,

it is a leap of faith, casting an open net
hoping to gather beauty.
wanting the effort to lead simply to more….
for all of us.
so lover of words,
care taker of simplicity
thank you for the honor of
your participation and endorsement.

here's to more of us...finding each other.

Powerful thought, this one. I'll ponder this for a while. Great stuff!

Peace.

I don't like masks or clowns, so you captured this brilliantly.

I enjoy Haiku!

Just as a bit of a fun fact...I discovered that I was mis-using the Haiku form. Or perhaps, mis-applying the term Haiku to some of my 5-7-5 bits. What I was writing and calling Haiku were actually more along the lines of Senryu.

I like yours...I think you capture why some might think clowns are creepy.
