Power of Her Taunt..

Snatching her hamper
he pulverizes her dreams;
power of her taunt..



  1. Shortest haiku you ever wrote? Well, it painted a picture I found a bit frightening....great use of 3WW

  2. a strong haiku and veiw point, ramesh.

  3. Brilliant. Brevity is the soul of wit!

  4. First "violent" haiku I think you've written! And I guess if snatching a hamper is the most violent you ever get it confirms you are a peace loving person!

  5. Creative but punishing. Liked the brevity part of it.

  6. Not sure what happened here... Did her taunting drive him to take away her hamper, ruining her dreams of a perfect day out? This was certainly short and angry, but I am not sure I entirely 'got it'.

  7. I suppose it is not the snatching that is the key but the unwritten way is was done when what love they had vanished by that action. We didn't see his angry eyes! Short, yes, but so full of meaning.
