facade (troiku)

masking facade
bold yet striking
hollow eyes

masking facade
hiding frowns
liquid tears

bold yet striking
her last

hollow eyes
death of the soul

  1. This is really wonderful 🙂 You’ve captured the essence of the creepy hollow feeling of the eyes – dead – so very well Cheryl-Lynn. Great use of the form – works very well with the sentiments.

    Thanks for participating in the photo challenge

    Cheers ~ Pat


  2. Oh my lands! I certainly didn’t expect that last haiku of the troiku .. gave me a chill … a totally interesting write Cheryl-Lynn!


    1. Haha, yes well that image certainly gives a chill or two as well 😉 thanks for reading, cara. I am not reading or writing much these days except for daily moments…trying to catch up on reading.

      1. Same here … the winter rain finally started and with heavy winds to boot! Any way I think the phone lines must have gotten flooded so my internet has become a real mess. On the other had, that’s given me a chance to catch up on spring cleaning and ‘other’ reading … there are storm clouds as I write and I’m hoping not to get kicked off again today .. fingers crossed!


      2. Fingers, eyes and legs crossed but on the flip side reading hard copy books is a nice change. Did you hear I bought The Tibetan Book of Dying and Living two weeks ago but the Chinese version (blushes) but finally got the English version Saturday. Another great read 🙂
