Haiku ~ 3WW


red light approach
bottle-smooth black ice
deferred stop

**

smooth as mango flesh
the sommelier approaches
...one costly bottle

**

blanket-smooth landscape
approach of a new blizzard
exit bottle necked



**



Prompt words by 3WordWednesday: bottle, smooth, approach

I enjoyed these very much. Thanks for sharing.

I kept going back to "smooth as a mango's flesh" never quite thought of it that way

The third one in particular, evokes a strong image. You need wine with all the coldness and snow. Lovely similes.

I think you were greatly influenced by your weather. As much as I love snow, as crazy as the snow has been for mild Western WA, I'm glad I am in Florida; thanks for reminding me. First one is my favorite. Love the picture.

Each one of these is a gem, but I loved the middle one-smooth as mango flesh. That's slippery smooth writing!

that black ice, barely visible, very smooth, and oh so dangerous.
