Haiku Heights September haiku a day challenge kickoff–drawbridge

the castles I make
have sand drawbridges, and moats
no deeper than hands

    Mine always had drawbridges! Hands as a measure is perfect–and even made me think of the horses that cross the bridges. Perfect.

    A beautifully simple haiku. The best I have read today! I like the hands at the end, linking back to making – it is very well crafted.

    I like the way you showed the depth of moats.. you must have seen that moats in my haiku can’t be measured with depth.. I loved your haiku so much..

    Very very nice images! Love the last line.

  16. I’ve seen moats in England, and not one of them was/is as shallow as the length of a hand. Oh, how you startled—and delighted—me with your image!
