TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge: Deep & Fill #02


deep throated croaking
fills the late evening air
frogs in chorus
deep in the jungle
hunting… once to fill tums
now for money… wrong
deep in the mind
forgotten memories fill gaps
a prompt can evoke
deep in its heart
a diamond traps light to fill
true  loves endeavours

  1. my ink well… my heart
    full to overflowing… words
    my passion… my life
    my blood is my ink
    red morphs to black as I write
    without fear or favour
    ‘dip in the black pool’
    tar… fossilising nature
    embalmed history
    the pool of life… begs
    threatened by pollution… rife
    climate warming … real
    i beg your pardon
    plagiarism not my way
    ‘this one time guilty’
    Hope you don’t mind TJ, used/pinched your amazing line, ‘dip in the black pool’, it alone inspired all of the above, your haiku no exception, brilliant!
