Blanket of fire nips
At the center of my heart
Smoldering passion

  6. granbee says:

    Oooh, this one makes me want to get out my castanets and hair combs and mantilla, Becca!


  7. Mara says:

    Having fire “nip” at your heart sounds painful. As I read it in your haiku, I could actually “feel” the pain. Great work!


  8. Beautiful as per usual…
    You are undoubtedly the Queen o f Haiku! 🙂

    Very nice…I enjoyed it a lot AND the photo you chose was perfection.

    Now that I am working, I need to remember…since I’ve never seen an email announcement of the weeks topic, …to look for your post on Wednesday…

      Siggi — I don’t get email reminders … didn’t know one could. The only one I get is from Monday and Thursday Poet Rally (once connected with Jingle Poetry) … I do keep it on my sidebar as a reminder. 😀

        I am so ignorant…I don’t know how to have a side bar :{

          I don’t know what WP Theme you are using — but from the reader’s side — it looks like you have room on the left side (so perhaps you could make another column using widgets found in the Dashboard area — 4th section from the bottom – Appearance – then widgets). Hope I didn’t make it more confusing. 😀


  15. Nice haiku, Becca.
