morning sacrifice—
how one feather in the sand
appeases the gods

  1. Look for A Lovely Thing

    Mmm, very clever this combining of prompts. This is terrific. 🙂

  2. Jessica Slavin

    Nice one, I like the image.

  3. Your haiku always have such a great sense of place.

  4. This is another feather in your cap!! 🙂

  5. Mmm…I like it. Whimsical

  6. They take some keeping happy those gods. Thankfully, they’ve got your words to make them smile 😉

  7. tomorrow they’ll want another – those gods can be unreasonable….

  8. Wow! I’m happy to learn that a single feather is enough to keep the gods at bay! Unfortunately I don’t have even one! I do however have a full head of hair….might a single strand of hair work?

  9. just saw the Lone Ranger…reminds me of Johnny Depp leaving a feather or some token in exchange for something….silly but fun

  10. Feels deep and somber. Great photo.

  11. Love this. and very clever to fit two words in (and a picture) and still write a great haiku)

  12. Wonderfully composed haiku post MMT, I like it as I see how you (as others by the way too) use two or more prompts of memes in one haiku. That’s very good. A excellent haiku you share here with us. Thank you.

    Namaste
