Having written the first, I realised the prompt so wrote a second.

    Oh, yes. I love the first one.

  5. Frank Hubeny says:

    What we encounter leads us to saying both yes and even no to it. The no may be what gets us to act.

    I love that website and it does have some very interesting prompts. Your second poem stands out very strongly…yes, I get your message loud and clear!

    The second haiku must be the lock speaking. I like this challenge 🙂 You did it justice!

  10. Grace says:

    I too like the first haiku….Have a good weekend ~

  11. For me the second one is strong enough to stand by itself too

  12. Excellent experimentation of haiku. You’ve just inspired me to start doing an experimentation of my own in some weird haiku’s of things. Love this a lot. 🙂

    Yes I think it does stand very comfortably by itself. You very much have your own touch… a fresh and challenging voice, which I do admire.

  14. Especially love the first… the contrast after the cutting word is great.

  15. Like this set very much
