You dare to charm me,
sundown, with your Siren song?
Plunge into darkness!

  1. Lovely haiku here and gorgeous sky shot as well!!

  2. That’s amazing when you can submit your photo! To snap a good one often involves good planning unless one is lucky. Luck often comes at unguarded moments!

  4. This is a beautiful sunset.

  5. Wow–never heard someone so angry with a sunset before! Nicely done 🙂

  7. This is wonderful! Brilliant (no pun intended) use of words and allusion to mythology applied to nature. I really think this Haiku is “right on”.

  8. That’s so beautiful really! Whose not charmed anyway?

  9. I’m looking at a sky like that right now, and it’s dawn – the opposite side of the coin. Your haiku is lovely.

  10. Marvelous Haiku and aggressively bold!! Love the confrontation here!! …… But it never ceases to rise again!! 🙂

  11. Love the contrasts here!

    Dare to charm you?

    Water water on the brain
    Water drives me mad insane
    Water running down my knees
    Water fighting off disease
    Water water is the plea
    Water tastes better than tea!
