Haiku Tuesday: Your attendance is optional

Abysmal futures
stretch their insatiable maws
choices matter not

Echoes of laughter
haunt the playgrounds of my mind
joy trickles like sand

Friendly park-side chats
dwindle to mumbles and threats
suspicions consume

Rusty swings hang still
foreboding crawls up my spine
Fear drips soaks pools spreads

Portals open wide
dimensional temptations
complacent voyeur

  1. I think you’ve captured the state of the world perfectly in those lines:
    “Friendly park-side chats
    dwindle to mumbles and threats
    suspicions consume”
    I love the images you’ve created to accompany this piece as well–really stunning.
