broken shutters hide
broken promises inside
shattered by your lies

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. A really eye-catching image, Jude. The orange brightens up the building, making it look slightly less distressed. 🙂 Your haiku is very apt for the challenge.

  2. Haha, BRAVO, Jude! Great take on the challenge, love the eye-catcher and the poem ❤ 🙂

  3. Great take on the challenge, that haiku does set a dark mood. That pop of orange gives one hope though….

  4. Love your haiku together with the photo Jude, and the splash of orange really makes it. You know how I love anything eluding to a darker story. Very evocative. And just to say, I really hoped to be able to get my bench post out this week, but have to take my laptop in (long story) so will it be okay to do it next week? Sorry to be a pain… xx

      1. Thanks Jude! I’ve had to send my laptop back to the manufacturer’s so back to the old one which is soooooo slow. It’s been such a frustrating time, and has a lot to do with my lack of blogging lately. Hope to get a post up a bit later, and I will be over to you again to catch up as soon as. Hope you didn’t get too much of a battering with the storm. My poor lupins are flattened 😦 (But my roses are fine this time!) xx

    1. As you can see I have used this technique sparingly and still have to count the syllables by hand. 5 – 7 – 5 and even look some words up to double check it is the number of syllables I think it is! Hard work this Haiku lark 🙂
