I enjoy all of the Haiku Heights writers. You will, too, if you stop by and read their wonderful works. This week, the word prompt is ILLUSION. My take on this is as follows:


Slight hint of a smile
Upturned mouth and grin intact
Heart heavy and sad

Once more, thank you to HAIKU HEIGHTS for the fantastic word prompt. This prompt is suggested by Aakriti of YARN OF WORDS. I must say this photo I am using rivited my attention and I could not leave it alone. These Afghan women know much about the rigors, frustrations, and limits their life demands of them,  yet, the birth of a child brings them courage and togetherness much like it does in my culture.

This week Haiku Heights gave us another great word prompt – tiptoe. The word brought me back to a night in the 60’s when I was watching my favorite late night talk show host, Johnny Carson. Tiny Tim was the guest and he sang (in a way only he could sing) “Tiptoe through the Tulips”. My mind froze back to that time and I could think of nothing else. I am giving away my age and my generation, but, what memories those 60’s held!

I did manage to write a Haiku despite perseverating about Tiny Tim (and the 60’s)!
