the sound
of a suppressed giggle
inside the toy box

    Thanks Daver... I try to be ambiguous enough, in my haiku, to spark the readers imagination. Pleased you liked it!

    interesting. . it reminds me of when I was a child, holding back laughter in class. I really like the image too. I too thought of a jack in the box. Way to invoke memory and imagery! Always, Laura

    Nice of you to check my earlier works... when I write new stuff I sadly almost forget about the older stuff...

    Some find comfort in what other's would call "claustrophobic". Thanks again for taking the time to read!

    Haha that's funny that you thought of that! In my head I was imagining a little girl hiding in a chest (the reason for her suppressed giggles being that she's playing hide and seek). Haiku seems to do that sometimes... varied depending on who's reading.

    I love this one... I'm not certain whether it's a child's toy box or an adult's, but it works either way. Nice writing. Jack
