Haiku – Milk & Smooth

#1
Often overlooked,
The milk of human kindness
Smoothes out life’s furrows

#2
Milk of the poppy,
Smooth, soft, anaesthetising,
My velvet cocoon

#3
White Russians:
Like a hand grenade
Wrapped in silk

#4
Cream rises always
To the top of the carton
Ascent isn’t smooth

#5
Flawless, milky skin
Round eyes, soft lips, tender heart…
And legs she killed for

  1. I also found the metaphor for the White Russian bang on. Brings back carefree memories of bar-hopping days in another life. Ha ha! The poppy haiku really intrigued me. I feel like it has a double meaning. Wonderful, Al.

  2. An amazing collection once again Al. You really are letting your imagination rip on the challenges Ron sets. The first one is such a moral for living and the last one really intrigues me. A couple in between hint of dangerous living.

  3. Wow! Each one better than the next. I loved the first one and the second made me think of ‘Game of Thrones’ (milk of the poppy). I think that’s where I first heard that. And what you wrote about white russians––so funny and true. πŸ˜‰ Great haiku!
