There is a story in those words ! so touching !
Yes there is a long one, thanx Aziz
Wow! Poignant and beautiful
Thank you Celestiene
Beautifully worded the agony of the betrayed one!!
moonlight betrayal. Nice one.
:) hmm, thanx
By moonlight, we generally think of romance. But you have liked moonlight with betrayal, that's interesting. Lovely lines.
Thats what betrayal is all about, best things become worst.Thnx
Betrayal is debilitating ultimately affecting both parties with no clear winners! Nicely Kislaya!Hank
Yes you are right, its a nightmare one shouldnt have.
Facing reality is almost always a chilling experience.
It devastates us.
Short and effective!
Kislaya like you understand my comics I think I find your poetry next level. So beautiful... loved it Richa
Oh Richa thanx for showering appreciation.. :)
'Shimmering moon & shuddering', beautiful imagery.
Love the contrast of the beauty of nature and the beastly human nature...
Yes Reshma, life is full of such contrasts!Thnx
finally a good haiku from you after a long time
Thanx Sid, seeing you after so long, keep visiting
Oh this is mysterious and good x I want to know more!
Hmmm, but I guess for now thats the end of the story.....betrayal!
Beautifully sad haiku! Nice take on the prompt. :)
Thnk you Claudia.
Short but soulful Haiku.
oh heck...you create an intense image in just few lines..
Thanx claudia :) I guess haiku is all about this.
short, straight and sad but very well expressed.
I think this Haiku has a dual tone. One of ecstasy as well as that of betrayal. You've taken the one of betrayal but it's still ambiguous, don't you think?
What I want to portray here is that the girl is waiting, as you said in an elated mood, in the most romantic moment, but in that very moment of ecstasy she is betrayed and her 'to be' best moment becomes her worst moment.
Short and sweet.
Great impact with your well chosen words!! Excellent!!
Thanx so much :)
Wel i dnt quite undstand haikus.....i duno how ppl pull it off.....
Earlier even I didnt, but once got to know the rules and I started writing it myself, got a hang of it, There is beauty of expression in less words, multiple Inerpretations, and various angles to look at it from a readers perspective. I m sure if you try you will find it interesting.
