the burden of narcissism
manifests as art and yet carries not
a glimmer of self deprecation.

Preening and strutting
I can barely be contained.
Humble? What is that?

fabulous mirror
son, don't we look marvelous
with our peacock dicks?


sorry to be crude
i call it like i see it
and that's what i see

startling peacock, well placed

su i love your haikus because you very definitively don't follow the rules, which is very refreshing. ; D

su said...

yeah well i try but it is just impossible.
for me it would be refreshing if i could stick to the rules.

Ha ha ha, very good. I'm not that fussed myself. Half the fun is having people stop in.

Hmm... thinks... Su has a good point. Writing something sensible about a picture like this is almost impossible. And that's because haiku aren't meant to be about pictures like this. Haiku are meant to be about a crow landing on a branch or the snow on a statue of buddha or the sound of a cicada. They should be about a single finger-click snapshot. And what's this pic about? Phew! Nothing you can fit in a finger click that's for sure.

But still, I think the appropriate response is a shoulder shrug and a let's-carry-on.

Why can't I see me?
Son, this is not a mirror
I had them all smashed

A. Peasant said...

ha well we all agree
rules are over-rated.
there's a broken haiku for you.
