A green case

weirdest facial scan
cucumber wearing glasses 
with something in green 

her pince-nez was found
closed green glasses case the nose
reason for vague views

the harsh green a guide 
now a much more clearer view
spectacles in sight

©Ellie Daphne

I saw a weird picture of filled desk with a pair of glasses on a green eye-glasses-case: 
it looked like a face..........
A kind of exercise in 'thinking outisde the box' and writing a poem about it
using the haiku-form. 
By the book it isn't a haiku - I know -may I call this  a fun(ny)- Haiku.

    Ellie I do the same thing, see a picture, an advertisement, or reading an article and before you know it an idea pops in my mind for a poem. Our creative minds can never shut down. Clever write. Thanks for sharing the tidbit at the end. Warm Smiles, Connie
