Haiku with Flair

Responding to Susi’s challenge …
IWH Haiku Challenge #4 (Picture interpretation)


The scream lies below
Trapped and halted in flight
Withering inside


Modesty unleashed
Seeking tendrils of love
Dark desires atoned


Find me in the night
Shimmering with cold desire
Reaching, touching time

Thanks to Jim for pointing me to this challenge.

Addendum: As I mentioned in a comment below, I looked again at the picture and saw an entirely different image! Not sure why I didn’t see “the baby” before …?? Obviously this means my haiku creations will seem a bit “strange.” All I can say at this point is pretend the picture isn’t there and just use your imagination.
