Haiku Heights Prompt: True

love shot from the heart
sings shining silver arrows,
speaks in a straight line

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    How very Cupidian of you, Susan. … No, I don’t think there is such a word, but I’m an English teacher, and I’ve always assumed the degrees bestow certain privileges towards my lexical experimentation. Call it fantasy if you will, but it helps me to keep myself entertained.

    well done.. straight through..truth is felt

  3. maharukh says:

    truth is reflective in your haiku… blunt and honest as an arrow haiku 🙂

    Hi Susan, my first time here. Like your haiku – wonder if the arrow ricochets when shot from the heart, and heads straight back, hmmm…
    Nice visiting you.

    I like speaks in a straight line ~ I would suggest a comma after arrows, so that there are two images ~

    The words to some whining 80’s song “your love is true” immediately took over the earwig portion of my brain — I’ve tried a hot shower, a cold shower, and a Q-tip, but they’re still stuck in there! I like the subtle use of true, as in defn. 6 “precise, accurate” !!

  11. nelle says:

    Right to the point, point to point.

  12. S Jayanth says:

    I am awestruck at the type of expression!
    3 marvelous lines. I am actually reading it over and over again.

  13. I like it! Well said.

  14. I believe this a principle of heaven spelled out in a shape of beautiful lines! Thanks again dear~Deborah

  15. I love this cupid-like haiku…. the heart will be pierced..

    perfect susan. we all like to see some illusiveness in or writing from time to time. but in real life we like the straight line – no devisive schemes when it comes to the actions of the heart.

  17. Jaideep Rao says:
