there they lay in pinks and whites -
fallen blossoms

closing the front gate
a sliver of moon to tell
whispers from the heart goodnight

silhouettes remain
still without the night wind
sound of the lock snapping closed

One aspect of The Emancipation Day celebrations I really luv is the fashion. I went to the Emancipation Day Village Fair yesterday. Here I am wearing a vibrant printed style outfit.

Midweek Motif ~ not-so-old-fashioned “Hobbies”

NOTE
While haiku poems are as old as the proverbial hills and the writing of it so too. i chose to respond to this prompt in a paradoxical mood for writing haiku is one of my hobbies however this artform is very new to me and is not the old fashioned hobbies i practised as a child or young adult.
