Shower of anger

Overcoming every cell

Breathe and play poker

  1. Play poker, huh? Think that could make you even angrier!

    I would be even angrier as I can’t play poker! Great haiku though and I love that image πŸ™‚

      Wow! Thank-you Trisha for the wonderful comment. I had to alter the original image to achieve the effect I was looking for to match the haiku.

        You’ve been freed! I have no idea why WordPress suddenly decided your comments were spam. There are so many weird glitches.

          Thanks, Trisha. The only way that I could free myself was to hook onto a bloggers comment and send a message. I couldn’t get to you other than find an older comment. Free at last, one fellow blogger at a time!!! I’ll visit your blog soon and make a comment. πŸ™‚

      Thank-you, Prakash, for the thoughtful comment. I try to steer away from the obvious in these haiku challenges, but sometimes my efforts are misunderstood, so that’s why I added the quote. I’m considering doing a haibun next time if the meaning is unclear. Not everyone understands the underlying meaning of “poker.” Have a great weekend.

      • The best part of writing poems is its free to be interpreted by the reader. Readers tend to relate to their experiences.

        Doing a haibun is a good idea as well. People can read the authors thoughts and comment on what they interpreted. πŸ™‚

    Hi Olga. I was captivated by your image and I like your haiku very much both for itself and the unique use of the prompt words. For what it’s worth, the meaning for me (not necessarily yours) is how anger can almost overpower but in many situations it’s best to stay cool and hide behind a poker face instead of over reacting.

      Excellent interpretation, Janice. Loved it. Thank-you for sharing that. It is very close to my intent. The strange thing about intent is that within such a short and concise form as haiku, one can sometimes only point to a meaning and hope for the best. Happy Easter weekend.

  10. Gosh! I was just entrapped. Imagine a haiku can lead to such sporty thoughts. I just loved it.
