‘deception’ prompt by Melissa Allen at NaHaiWriMo (yes, it’s still on!)

chameleon–
wondering who you are
now

eclipse–she changes her alias

in the morning
her puppet voice

in person his voice thinner

The National Writing Month (NaHaiWriMo) continues on the facebook site. Causing such frenzy among haiku writers of all stages–the masters and beginners encouraging and liking each other–its admin decided to keep it going. Michael Dylan Welch created the magnificant site in February. Alan Summers took over last month (March) to give the daily prompts, perks with great uplifiting words on the haiku and the poet, and some instant workshop with lessons. Melissa Allen (note my badge: ‘She, Red Dragonly, is my friend’) tackles this month’s prompts, as well as the rest, and I’m sure more of what often made the postings rather ‘wild’. Go get a facebook account and join in!

three more for ‘romance in haiku’

cup of latte–
passing hands
for one sip each

mug of tea–
just one for two

spring chill–
endless bird songs
ours
