    Every so often you really turn up the heat Vashti and this is the hottest I think I’ve seen yet. I love the black and white pictures with the ‘color’ haiku, they work perfectly together. Have a fab weekend. Xxx (I had to triple x my usual double x for such a steamy post 😛 !)

      Ha, ha! You had to triple the Xs this time. That’s hilarious! You always have such clever and artistic observations. I was drawn to the pictures because they went so well with the words of the haiku but the opposition of the prompt word ‘color’ and the fact that they’re B&W wasn’t deliberate but what great conception. 😀

    A very sensitive haiku Vashti matched with delicate imagery, (yours?) I had a car called a Fuego once, beautiful and French but not quite to your haiku standard.

    This would indeed make for an exciting weekend. I do so like the way your words paint these pictures. Have a great weekend, and a delightfully hectic Thanksgiving. 😘

      Hi Caleb! Thank you! 😀 I had a lovely weekend. I hope you did too. My Thanksgiving will certainly be hectic––no doubt. Hopefully it will be delightful too. 😉 You have a great one!

      Yeah, I felt the fear when I wrote those words together but decided to do it anyway. I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Thank you! 😀

    This sizzles with passion and doesn’t just border on the risque. Very boldly written and a heated use of the Haiku and Ronovan’s Two Words. You once called what I wrote Naughty. I would rate this as quite naughty and a great deal of fun. 🙂

      I thought I should increase the intensity of heat on my blog and warm everyone up, since the temperatures outside are plummeting. 😉 Ha, ha. Thank you very much! 😀 xx
