TJ’s Household Haiku #10 – Perfume and Lost #2


its great to meet
folk of the same ilk as mine
yet we can differ

Lost Perfumes

I too had thoughts, attempted to stick to one prompt site, but like natures diversity, humans poetry covers many fields in words. Profound, profane, feeling of the heart, fantasy, fiction, subliminal attempts to fashion passion, a world of poetic licence, in and out of time. Like perfume evoking memories, once lost in history. Tastes, bitter, sweet, life’s trials, tribulations, poets convert to verse, one of our life’s pleasures.

to walk in pastures
natures aromas… freedom
the buzz of life

  1. anon

    tanka = haiku plus two lines of 7 syllables, though my interpretation
    might vary with the traditionalists… but I’m not worried.

    I am always honored to inspire another writer. No apologies needed. Here’s a link to a ‘cri de cœur’ that was inspired by another ‘blog conversation’ I had with another writer.

  2. I have heard of one sentence/line haiku (probably have written some without counting), I didn’t know it had a name. But then there is the constant debate on syllable count. And I am more a rebel when it comes to rules… Though I did follow the count for ‘filling vales…’

    Did you write a flash fiction…or just blink in at mine? Thanks for the link-up.
    I’ve been writing for Carrot Ranch for about two years or so. That’s one of my go to prompts.
    I did look at TJ’s. And I put his site on my prompts favorite list so I can explore it more.

    If you like short forms you might also like the eleven word Dutch Elfje… I’ve got info and a link
    to Simply Elfje that has a very good explanation at Gems. Last month at Gems were all Elfje (some Elfje series as well).

      Jet streams – are fast flowing, narrow, meandering air currents that are not normally found south of the UK. They blow from west to east

      I used the Press This option on your f-cr-replay-rewind-repeat-7 28 and Yes a flash fiction comment.
      Another yes for Carrot Ranch. Messed up there, wasn’t shore who the host was. I stumbled on Irene A Waters blog assuming her title “Buzz to Bang: 99 Word Flash” contained the prompt words and composed an entry based on them, albeit an acrostic, using buzz to bang, but not as my title, which was “Classified:Top Secret”. However I am when finished here going to visit here blog and explain. The latter done.

      1. Ah…I see you used 11 words, but not quite in the right order… but that’s OK. Don’t change what you wrote. Keep ‘m and do more 😉 The sentence order of words is 1,2,3,4,1.
