Optical Illusion – A Haiku

I found this week’s photo prompt by TJ for his Household Haiku Challenge a bit perplexing. Blame it on my astigmatism! I stared long and hard trying to decide whether I was looking down at a reflective pool or through a rocky portal…hence my chaotic little out-of order Haiku. What do you see, now that I’ve planted that perspective in your head? Things are not always what they seem! 😉 This week’s prompt words with the synonyms I used for this week’s Haiku in parentheses are Chaos (muddle) & Order (tranquil).

or glimpse through Valhalla’s loam
muddling puddles

Versailles Orangerie – Photo by TJ Paris

roots never mingling
these solitary gardens
know not frost’s cool kiss

Ecstasy’s Perfume


rose in ecstasy 
beautiful from bud to bloom
weeps perfume when crushed

A Life Full


to love only once
even if the time is short
is a life full lived
