Continuing the saga of body parts and #Haiku

Sounds sinister, doesn’t it?
Well, I hope you find the following Haikus anything but ominous…

I resolve to love
changing shapes and colors of
my Autumn body

under the delightful weight

The pitter patter
of a lonely cloud’s anguish
a broken heart heals

Haikus and body parts

I wrote a Haiku today in response to a #vss365 prompt and posted it on twitter before I remembered that I had pledged to include anatomical elements in each Haiku. Obviously, then, I felt compelled to modify it.

I’m posting the original one here and also the modified one. Have a look…

*vss365 (very short story, one for every day of the year)

The original verse:

Iridescent paint

Nature’s sublime canvas glows

Murky air plays foul

The modified Haiku:

Iridescent paint

Nature’s canvas enthralls

The heart yearns afresh
