Three Islands

Haiku Heights

She hides from strangers
on her own private island—
dolphins sing to her.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
As a farewell gift,
she gave him a small island
swimming through the stars.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
If people are shocked
that I own seven islands,
what is that to me?

  1. I’ve been to the island in your first poem – a lovely place, indeed!

  2. You shock us with your wonderful haiku 🙂

  3. These are all great. I like the mystery of the first two most I think; they both leave a lot to teh imagination whilst also being complete.

  4. Lovely triplet of haiku on island. Love the first the most.

  5. I enjoyed your set of haiku today. My favourite is the first one. I would love to be on an island where dolphins sing to me 🙂

  6. First one is a cracker!

  7. Oh, I’d love to be on the island where the dolphins sing! And what to do about seven islands? Give one to me! 😀

  8. The first two are lovely, but the impudence of the third is great.

  9. Indeed..why should you bother…you owning seven islands…I visiting one each night of the week in my dreams appears a happier choice…than wondering or feeling envious.. MMT…as usual loved your take..


  10. Owning an island can be easy reality where I live. Come, all ye rich people! 🙂

  11. A joy to be swimming in the realms of paradise. That’s how I felt going through the verse! Nicely MMT


  12. No. 3 is my favorite! What, indeed 🙂 MMT, lovely takes on the prompt.

  13. You own seven islands …wow!! now that’s a great news for all of us….all three of them are beautiful..

  14. Nice dolphins singing is a great image
