    That is simply crazy beautiful. Your haiku. It’s great. And I love the picture You paired it with. Is that Your art? It’s so lovely. THank You and Cheers and Namaste. 🙂

  9. I’m not sure why, but when I read this, a wonderful laugh wanted to rise up and escaped. Perhaps it was the delight of the warrioress who realizes what she conquered. This haiku reeks of accomplishment, in both theme and delivery.

    Nice one, Amanda!

  21. you did it again amanda… this is a brilliant haiku!

  22. Excellent! You have such an ability to refine and choose the pefect words.

  23. This impresses me, Amanda. I find haiku very difficult to write effectively, which is exactly what you’ve done here. Very very nice! 😀

  24. Whenever I’m alone- just by myself in silence, I feel like I’m made of ideas and fantasies more than flesh and bones.
    This was amazing Amanda, thank you for sharing! 🙂

  25. perfect beauty.

  26. simply… beautiful!

  27. The simplicity of the words play wonderfully against the complexity of the subject matter. Beautiful haiku, thanks for posting it on Poetry Potluck.


  28. Great! I just love the simplicity of a haiku and am amazed at the depth of meaning in such a short piece.

    Mine is here.

  29. awesome piece…

  30. The haiku is such a delicate form, and you have done it well, from my perspective, as a non-haikuist– I’ve never dared. The illustration is phenomenal!

  31. Dear Buttercup…

    My favorite form of poetry is Haiku and this one is so powerful and emotions are so strong in this.. I could picturise this immediately… thanks for sharing…
