Haiku Mondays: BIRTH


Sacred

River’s iced embrace
washes soul of sin. Behave!
You’re a Christian now.


Profane

Botticelli’s babe
today: Too fat for naked.
Put some clothes on, girl.

Troll's hosting this week, based on a theme chosen by
last go-round's winner, Deep Blue.
Head on over and see what all the fun is about.

does this stuff just roll of your brain? I love them, but especially the second one.

Happy Haiku Monday.

DeepBlue said...

Looks like toi... er I mean you and Princess have been visited by Botticelli's spirit!

Beautiful haiku's. I like the little sarcasm in the first one: BEHAVE! (or die!)
Hugs

Sacred and Profane. Classic. Very nice haiku with a message.

Have you read "Small Gods" yet?

moi said...

K9: Thank you!

Boxer: More like "leaks out." :o)

Deep Blue: Or suffer! Or get warts! Or, whatever. I don't like it when the message of love is punishing.

Troll: Not yet. It's loaded, but I'm still slogging through the last Girl With Tattoo book. Have to finish that first.

Great stuff, Moi. Just the use of "Botticelli" makes everything sound better, as per:

Got to hurry on back to my hotel room
Where I’ve got me a date with Botticelli’s niece
She promised that she’d be right there with me
When I paint my masterpiece

Love them both, and can't choose between them because the pair is perfect! Happy Haiku Monday!

Oooh, my conscience just shivered. And then I giggled. Awesome.
