Fugitive Fragments

Haiku – Sculpture Series

its fifteen minutes of fame
hot in the city

But then when the heat is on
we fall divided

ICE SCULPTURE 3D KENNEDYImpermanence chills
Her chiseled exquisiteness
Beauty always fades

ICE a393_s18Sunrise coming soon
despite his appeals to God
hasn’t got a prayer

ICE snowandice23Jungle morning finds
Tiger, Tiger burning bright
evaporating

took igloo sled and snowballs

    LOL Enjoy it while it lasts! :) Great poem! :)

  3. Great stuff! Love ‘United we stand’ :)

  4. You are snow punny Mike!! These images are cool, but the words are just the icing on the puck, or is that pick, wait, my thawts must be frozen… I’ll stop now… Great haikus x

  5. beautiful images and nice haikus to go with them!

  6. Beautiful photos and lovely Haiku’s Mike! :)
    Lots of love

  7. What a delightfully fully humourous series of haikus designed to melt one’s heart. :D

  8. ‘Wife froze him out’
    I wonder why guys think that–it’s not what wives are set out to.

    Yet, all that ice must be a refreshing thought for you now;))

  9. Awesome! Howls. Especially the last one.

  10. Very nice! Your photos work perfectly with your prose.

    This post is so refreshing and inventive :) Fantastic photos and poetry. Loved it :)

  12. Great photos and I liked the Haiku you did with the photos. Some humorous, too. :-) Take care. Sincerely, Connie Webb

  13. Great series of haiku and I loved the accompanying ice sculptures. Where was the ice event? In Auckland we have an ice bar complete with table hockey made out of ice (very hard to pick the ice puck up from the ice floor when it drops).

  14. Very pretty words and pictures. If only the weathermen on TV could be so efficient and evocative with their message…

  15. All so well done, Mike. My favorite is the last one though, such a sense of humor. Love it!

    Stellar work, Mike. I especially like the double entendre of a praying mantis not having a prayer! Subtle!
