old stones in a shoe
gnaw at her sole

your pound of flesh
at stake

with a dead language

What a super collection, how nice of you to gather all those together Gillena, so different and yet resulting in the same idea, what lovely styles :)

Lorena said...

those were fun to read, thanks for sharing them

Ralf Bröker said...

I do remember them - especially Angelika's. Good set!

Best wishes

I liked the experience of reading all these haiku on the same theme all at once. I especially liked the ones where the writer used the word "lent" but didn't go for the seasonal, religious meaning of the word -- a twist on the theme.

Thanks for stopping by

much love

Such a lovely gathering of haiku on Lent, each with its own special perspective! And love the interesting bend of the shadow in the photo!
