Circles

 
 
 


In vanishing ink
 
she sketches circles of light,
 
while Samson goes blind.

    She sketches
    circles of light;
    vanishing ink..

  7. lovely &
    yes
    this—-> an enigma to be savored …

    i feel that to be true
    Here
    & in my own writings …

    sometimes the words ~marry*up~
    secretly
    behind their meanings,
    i do believe

  8. I’m wondering how Delilah was able to sketch circles of light and not darkness, given her role in Samson’s life. Intriguing haiku, Mark.

  9. fascinating and beautiful way to express this age old tale.

  10. Delilah. Thy name is …. ________. Anyone, fill the gap?

    Wait. I’m still looking for the superlike button to click.

    • Sorry, I disabled the “Like” button several weeks ago. Just one of those things…

        So, you disabled the “Like” button? Now I see why I cannot “like” these on FB. I have been trying to figure it out. I do enjoy everything you write, Mark, just so you know. I can’t even figure out how to like them on here, but thought I would let you know that I see them on FB. Sorry I am so computer illiterate :=(

  14. Oh, to sketch circles of light, sounds heavenly, until the last line, why does there always have to be consequences?

  15. amazing how that can happen in the very same moment.
    one womans circle is another mans sight.
