Haiku Wednesday 2 Feb

Sensational Haiku Wednesday

Join the fun!
You know ... that Blog?

Today's topic is Disclosure

This was a really hard subject this week - so I only have two for you!!

Behind the velvet
Cocooned within wooden walls
Forgive me Father

Haunted by headlines
Shackled to a shameful past
Life imprisonment


  1. I really like the way the first one is worded!

  2. Nicely done. I like them both. The fellow in the second needs to pay a visit to the fellow in the first. :)

  3. I don't know how you do it! Both of them are so good and really capture what they are trying to express. That being said. I think the one about confession is my fave!

  4. With my history in the newspaper business, I have to like the second one best, but the first is quite poignant, Dom. Not, however, as poignant as "shackled to a shameful past"! At least the first haiku includes forgiveness following the disclosure, whereas the second implies none in the person's lifetime.
    By the way, I played around with a story using different fonts. I used more than 50 font names, but couldn't come up with much of a plot.

  5. Awwww such sad and sorrowful haikus!!! Lovely to read - thank you! Take care

  6. OOOOhhhhhhh love the confession Haiku wonderful!

  7. two very different, yet very much the same poems!

  8. You did well, even if the theme wasn't an easy one. I like to make us all think a little - whats the fun if they're too obvious or easy, right? Great takes on theme, well done!

  9. I loved these. I would never have guessed you found the theme tough. They are brilliant. I wish I'd thought of those themes on the theme. :O)

  10. I do not know if my earlier comment has gone through.
    Just to say that I liked both the Haiku's and the first out shined the second. Good Lord that one was excellent!! :)
