An opened window - A prisoner

Every wednesday, poeters are given picture prompt by Magpie Tales.We have to write a poem or short vignette using the picture featured in their post as our inspiration.The below picture prompted me to write Two Haiku's (5-7-5) of an opened window.


Haiku 1: Thoughts of a person caught in prison mentally

Through darkness I saw
A lost opportunity
An escape shines bright

Haiku 2: Thoughts of a person caught in prison physically

Darkness everywhere
My only way to escape
An opened window
Poem above written for Magpie Tales picture prompt.

  2. It is always good IF there is an open window through which one can escape...either in actuality or by gazing at what is outside. Nice Haiku.

  9. I really liked your Haiku. I am not so good at it. Never attempted it.

    The concept of darkness and light, captivity( of thoughts, etc) and freedom is nice.

    @Diane&Brian...I did'nt mean its a mentally ill person but a person stuck between problems in between searching for a solution mentally .
    I learn to Look how poems pictures itself differently in each poets mind :)

  20. Interesting -- lost opportunities, it reminds me of how we carelessly let time slip through our hands, unnoticed like the back door to the house left open.

    Beautiful haiku and lovely music.
