The Mag 107

Published for: Magpie Tales
Well ... a new Sunday to write a haiku to accompany a picture as published today on Magpie Tales. Last week I couldn't write a haiku for the picture, but this week's picture is lovely ... so let's do it.



What do I see? I see a guy standing for a picture of a woman's face ... her eyes staring at him. What does this picture ... bring to me ... how to write a haiku that can accompany this picture.

mysterious eyes
working like a magnet
I am possessed 


I am possessed
through the eyes of my girl
nailed to the ground


nailed to the ground
I wonder what she's doing with her
mysterious eyes

This is called a cascading haiku. It's a haiku form I am exploring.

See you next time.

I am not a writer or a poet or whatever. My blog is just a way to get me out of tension. A form of outlet. Thanks for your wonderful comment and visit to my blog this morning... Made my day...

You can feel the power of the possession all right! The form seems to work well.

I use syllable count in my own work. I like this use of the form.

I think the repetition here works well; I like the cascade effect. Cheers.

I like the "cascading haiku" - I haven't seen that before! It definitely brings an extra amount of "flow" to your words.

Nice work! I wonder what she is doing with her eyes as well. :)

A cascading haiku, how nice, Chevre! I dabble in haiku at odd times. Should try it myself. It gives good continuation. Great!

Very nice ... and I like you using the cascading Haiku ... so many of our Haiku challengers have "taken a liking" to this form and continue with it ... Great job!
