BP: Haiku Dialogue–Ephrasti-ku (Hell Courtesan)

The newest guest editor, Pippa Phillips, of the Haiku Foundation’s weekly column, Haiku Dialogue, has started a series of haiku themes based on art works. This week’s theme was the painting Hell Courtesan by Kawanabe Kyosai.

Haiku poets from around the world submitted haiku based on the painting including this pedometer geek writer. Surprisingly, one haiku was selected for inclusion. It is as follows:

About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.
