I walk on a road lush with dreams,
a road of forgotten and veiled dreams,
sometimes slowly, sometimes gaily,
sometimes lost, sometimes profound,
I walk a road of unknown mysteries,
fervently finding my way through the endless path.....

haiku challenge day-10

A princess in satin
mourns gravely. For she lost
not empires, but love.

written for the


  1. Lovely. You captured her mourning very well.


  2. your words perfectly described the pain depicted in the image... well done, sarah!

  3. I love when a haiku makes me go back and really look at the prompt again. You saw royalty and satin while I did not; however, it is there when I look with new eyes. The loss of love we both saw may well reflect on our pasts rather than the painting. For this haiku, you have an aptly named blog.

  4. losing love is painful,
    your Haiku is beautiful.

  5. Lost love is even worse than losing an entire empire. Yes, it is! We all seem to see great pain in this girl's posture here...

    Beautifully captured, Sarah.
