Ephemeral Fame: Elfje with Haiku

Lost
Somber thoughts
In forgotten books
Philosophers, commedians and politicians
Lanquish

in the early dawn
thoughts like black clouds whispering
ephemeral fame

Spiders
Black webs
Capturing men’s minds
For a passing moment
Ideals

Written for and inspired by Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Photo Challenge and Blog it or Lose it for the poetic combination.

    • It’s becoming harder for me to reblog…the wp adds other people’s photos to my media library and it’s becoming too full…this is an alternative. Glad you liked it.

      • WP made some changes lately with how you add your own photos, too – I’d like to be able to add frames (you used to be able to do that) and to be able to resize photos (you know, 90%, 80%, 70%, like before). It’s frustrating. Like with the haiku cavalcade photos – I’d like for them to be larger than they are, but all I can manage is “medium”. Ugh. Sorry, rambling here.

        • My editor has large and full size and once put onto the post, if I click it I can further edit it with a thing called personal (which I haven’t tried yet but think that might have those little tweaks your talking about.) I hate it when they make “improvements” without notice…but then I don’t like my stuff to be changed once I’ve mastered it…I would like the choice to move on or stay with the old system.

  1. Really well penned… A topic that might to fit into poem shape and, yet, the ending product is marvellous. The last stanza is my favorite, Bastet.
    Best wishes to you, Aquileana 😉

    • Thanks Aquileana…it’s one of my fav topics so it was easy to put into a poetical form. These particular forms require synthesis to get a coherent thought, I’m happy then for your comment which tells me I’ve succeeded 🙂
