To see within shallow
Souls don’t need to stretch beyond
Low lying mirrors
Walking on wet street
Pools of shallow souls writhing
Worms gasp their last breath
It’s Tuesday and I was able to create these two haikus for Devereaux and Beth’s Tuesday Writing Prompt at the Go Dog Go Cafe. Finally on time for this prompt! Their request: Write a haiku using the words “shallow souls”. While the pictures don’t totally match the words (and not to imply that pigs or worms have shallow souls), the juxtaposition made me smile.
