Two dimensional

                            Juxtaposing light and dark

                             Black and white at play…



This is my first time joining in the haiku challenge at Jenn’s blog. For more info check it out here.

… and here is some mid-week relief – weird & whacky words to delight and astonish…

Bumbilical cord – the fixed connection between two teenage lovers walking with their hands in each other’s back pocket!

Sighchological warfare – the practice, between a married couple, of letting loose a sigh of displeasure that is just loud enough for the partner to hear, but subtle enough that it can be denied if called to account

      @G-Man ~ thanks for the visit & invite, sounds interesting… I'm SOOO tempted…

      @Golden Eagle ~ thanks for your ongoing support!

      @Susie ~ this may sound silly but it made me wonder… does that mean you get a non-poetic styled haiku?

  11. Jenn @ You know...that Blog? on January 30, 2012 at 2:54 pm

    Welcome aboard, Mish! Very nicely done 🙂

    Welcome to Sensational Haiku … like your take on the prompt!  I've always wanted to use the word "juxtaposing" … well done! 🙂

  13. mish on February 1, 2012 at 9:51 am

    Thanks Becca. The word does have a delightful ring to it… 🙂
