mirror or comparison

Carpe Diem #930 mirror

peck, peck
pretty blue shell cracks apart
chick of fair robin
emerges red, blind, naked 
and not much for looks



a perfect white rose
flutters in the spring breeze
the bride's veil

  2. A wonderful post Janice. In your haiku the comparison technique is very well used. It really gave me a kind of "aha-erlebnis".
