Haiku – Shelves of Song

I challenged myself to write a haiku (or three) a day throughout August. Here is the first, somewhat misshapen, unrefined fruit of my poetry labour. Make of it what you will.

I shaped a woman

In the image of a king

And she fell undone.



That muse of many

A flower stripped of petals –

Muted by a gaze.



Deconstruct her form

And find, tethered, a mile long

Legacy of lust.
