Haiku # 10


Joys like those of sex are known
- if no less fleetingly -
by those involved in art.

the joy is addictive, but random, fleeting... the satisfaction is more steady

Very true! I'm enjoying your daily haikus.

Tabor said...

If you say so...;-)

I'm enjoying your haiku. In this one I'm totally stopped by that little "if". I'm sure you chose each word carefully so I admit I don't know why the "if" is needed or what weight to give it.

Momo Luna said...

Is that so? But i like your haiku. :-)

Karen said...

Oh I do so agree Dave!

Jeanne said...

How true.

And other times, a pain much like the agonies of giving birth....

Andy Sewina said...

A lot of up's and down's, perhaps?

Kass said...

A...a....a...men!

No wonder I feel so satisfied and need a cigarette after writing a good poem.

Dianne said...

Ha! I can't top that, Enchanted Oak.

There is an awful lot of writing going on.....

I like your humor too.

Madame DeFarge said...

That explains why I know so little about art then.

Shadow said...

Cynthia said...

Dave
Multi responses from me in my thinking reading this. Initially I note that art and sex marry well with a bit of theater . I would wonder at both about intent.

Love your Haihu

Which is why tyrants and totalitarian regime clamp down on both sexual attitudes AND artists. Funny, isn't it?
