things to do, places to go ..

photo taken by somebody else, edited by me .. to protect the innocent, the wee one that is ..
this is yours truly in the photo .. not so innocent..

and a monday haiku, of course ....

inspired by my witnessing a wee child's first taste of
a delectable, plump, yellow fruit:

scrunched up little nose,
wide startled eyes, puckered mouth ..
thppt! lemon arcs far ..

this monday's haiku is hosted by moi

The editing on the photo makes the picture look pretty cool. It's almost like it's shot on another planet with a different class of primary star. Maybe an "F" class instead of "G". Very kewl.

Cool pix!

Boxer said...

That's a nicley doctored photo and I like your haiku. On the flip side of watching a little face taste sour is to see them taste sweet for the first time. Crack!

I want my money back

chickory said...

you know, i would be able to recognize your haikus cause you are the queen of sound effects- or words that are sound effects. i like it. and the photo too.

foam said...

Butterfly Mage,
I would have never thought of that. Cool idea though and i'm not surprised you thought it... :)


or anything cold! .. lol ..
expressions can be priceless.

that is about 50% of a perfect haiku. it's a 100% perfect statement. where do we go to get our money back though.

phfft .. you're just sayin' that .. ;) ... what i really meant to say ..
thanks! .. :)

Intuitive Eggplant said...

Great photo, lovely haiku! Happy Haiku Monday!

dianne said...

Very nice effect on the photograph and I love your haiku, I have seen that expression and subsequent 'thppt'on little faces when they taste something new.

xoxoxo ♡

moi said...

Nice. Your haiku is brilliant, as usual. I have judged, so come by when you get a chance.

i think you are an inspiration though .. :)

thanks, mo!

People always say I am something else, so it wasn't me.

foam said...

you sure you weren't the pug on the leash that was being walked around the park by a young lady?
oh, wait .. that wasn't a pug ..

X. Dell said...

I had to look hard to find the wee one. If you hadn't made the distinction, I'd have thought you were talking about yourself. After all, you're kinda short.


foam said...

well, yes, i agree .. i'm perhaps a bit stature challenged.
but, aren't you sure you just don't have piss poor eyesight? i seem to recall that about you .. :-)

Shrinky said...

Pamela said...

Haiku Monday's theme is NATURE.

Will you be able to play?

benjibopper said...

no longer Monday
yes sun is finally here
winter's mondays melt

Cool photo, has a bit of a gothic-horror aesthetic.

Casual Practitioner said...

Ghostly image. Good, friendly, fun-lovin ghostly, I mean. If I was a ghost, I'd play on playgrounds too.

X. Dell said...

bloggie identity .. :)
