    You always amaze me. I have a question. Do you choose the photo first or after you right the words?


    • becca givens says:

      In general – I choose the photo or image after I write … the only time I’ve used an image first is if it is part of a prompt — like this specific one. We were given the photo and requested to go from there. Thank you for your generous feedback, and stopping by for a visit.


  4. Bob says:

    Yes this is indeed seductive, great impact with few words.


  5. Jennifaye says:

    The poem itself–all 3 lines of it — seduces.

  7. Paul says:

    Becca – well crafted – erotic and wild in a great haiku – is there another word that says as much as Gypsy?
