Haiku Twenty-something


mausoleum sits

damp and musty-

spider web dangles


front doors creek

foot steps echo-

teenagers giggle

    Hey Gwendolen..this is one creaky/ creepy write I 'must say' it reminds of some places visited.. Needles to say one hotel like that is enough for a lifetimes experience of stays.. hope you are well Joe..)

    Yes, the wonder years, reliving days of beers and fears. Our nieve ways of knowing nothing. When we were young and twenty- something. Loved taking the journey down memory lane with you Gwen. Have a lovely today.

    I love your descritions and the images you've created. I can so much visualize it all before me as I read you. Very poignant and absolutely cleverly crafted.

    I know you've strayed from the traditional haiku, but I fell you've captured the essence of the form very well, this is a very enjoyable piece on many levels.

    Hopefully this is the right one [duck] it seems more halloweenie? [a mausoleum/ sits damp and musty--webs dangle] try for short LONG short..this is a haiku :) [do not be afraid of the little words the 'articles' a, the, an etc.] the front door creeks/as foot steps echo--teens giggle] see how th [as] gramatically joined line 1 and 2 and creeks acts as the verb..so in its simplist form a haiku has a subject line 1, and action line 2 & additional scensory input line 3! Gwen did it! Light & Love

    A truly meaningful Haiku Gwendolen, no easy accomplishment - I am suprised at how many angles of interpretation I can stride into from this marvel of brevity - reincarnation, chakras, robust imagery, religious rites, age manifesting suddenly, and oh, what are those kids up to? J.A.B. %

    I love this witty haiku, Gwendolen - and just love the title too, lol

    For teens, even mausoleums are laughing matter ....nostalgia about days when life brims with love and laughter!! jag

    Coolio, creepy-crawly haiku here, Gwendolen. Mausoleums and cemetaries are absolutely grand. May the Light of Lucifer shine upon you always. Ahwomen and Ahmen.
