Mental Haiku Duet

Left brain or right brain —
Which am I? The one, I fear,
that can’t remember.


Creative options
seem nearly unlimited —
overwhelmed, I freeze.


(The 2nd haiku was prompted by Writer’s Island’s unlimited and Sunday Scribblings’ nearly.)

  2. Old Egg says:

    Great complementary haiku poems. Whenever I see a prompt the first time I freeze. How can my brain sort it out. Luckily it is more clever than me!

  3. Lilibeth says:

    Such humor you manage to weave into these as we are slapped with such a sense of “I’ve been there”.

    Thanks so much Vivenne, Old Egg, and Lilibeth!. And Old Egg, your comment about your brain being cleverer than you made me chuckle. :)

    A truly good haiku is much more difficult that appearance would indicate. A humorous haiku: priceless.

    Humor and insight. I liked both of these – and identified with both of them as well. Thanks.
