Energy reined in
She prepares for the grim quest,
Skull Island ahead.
“That Treat You Want”
Such a cruel quest
He bought lettuce, not ice cream
Desire reined in.

  1. Skull island… that sounds scary! The mood in the first one was captured really well. The last line was shiver-worthy. And the second made me smile. Ice cream is much better than lettuce, though it does have its place.

  2. I know that second one all too well. I’ve been craving ice cream like crazy since it first got warm last week. So, that battle to balance healthy with not-so-healthy, and then caving in to desire… Yup. XD

    The first haiku is well done, too. I read it the way you recommended, and the “second half” hammers in the gloominess and dread that’s sparked in the “first half.” Very nice!

    • Yup. I want my ice cream. Even though I’m lactose intolerant, I will suffer for the delicious taste of it now and then.
      Thanks! Haiku are meant to be read in two parts, but I do try to blend them so it can work as a whole and separate, both. I’m glad I succeeded. 😀
