Contrasts and Contradictions, for dVerse

This is the first time that I will link up to dVerse … I have heard often about this weblog and I know that several of my visitors at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai are giving acte de presence here. This time it’s all about Contrasts and Contradictions so to me, Chèvrefeuille haiku-poet from The Netherlands, this will not be an easy task, but … I have to try. So here it is my first haiku ever for dVerse:

black and white
the love for colors fainting –
virgin maiden touched

look around the world
in which you are living every day
upside world in dew

Not as strong as I had hoped, but … well i have given it a try.

  1. it is cool what the dew does….giving us that other perspective on the world around us…intriguing contrast in the last line of that first haiku…like it much.
    sorry you missed the link over at dverse…we run them for 33 hours…but i am sure if you drop in on a few poets they might follow you back over here…

  2. Hi Kristjaan — I like both poems, but I think the first one is really strong — the way colors tend to “bleach” out of your vision when you’re growing faint, color turning into black and white. Plus, growing faint with excitement and love — it’s a very strong poem! 😀

  3. I like the contrast in both of these…and the photo. Couldn’t help but also think of the soccer game yesterday that The Netherlands won – Congratulations! A soccer ball is black and white and Netherlands turned the world upside down, so to speak (you know my ancestry is Dutch).
