Acid yellow, sharp,
catches the eye it’s so fresh,
redeems gloomy mood

find more sharp haiku  at Haiku Heights  and Trifecta wants 33 words around the word quaint using the definition: 

Quaint apple-cheeked ladies abound here.
Carpet slippered shoppers in the market
proudly sport  the badge of office
of the farmer’s wife hereabouts –
a flowery wraparound apron,
a heavy basket on her arm.

  1. Such beautiful, vivid images you’ve painted! Unfortunately, Trifecta requires that you actually use the word itself in your response. Can you squeeze it in?

    Funny thing. I bought a flowery wrap-round apron in a supermarket in Calais last year. It’s my favourite apron. I live in aprons. I love aprons.


  8. yellow is such a vibrant, alive colour, isn’t it? Perhaps why I love sunflowers as much as I do.
