Ah, yes, the fickle deck of life. I've been dealing a lot, lately, off this particular deck. Thanks for this.

Fickle is one way to put it...that is the nicest I can say about it today....

Michelle Johnson said...

Love Thom G's response and I have to agree. Life is definitely fickle. Great naisaiku.

I love this. I often think about the fickle deck of life and the lessons we learn as we grow older.

Great job!

One wonders which old lessons the crone is choosing to ignore.

Does this have a title? If not, I recommend "double or nothing." Unless I'm misunderstanding it.

Love the way 'fickle deck of life' makes a clicky sound in my mouth, it has a great beat to it!

Thanks for taking The NaiSaiKu Challenge?

I am coming more and more to understand and enjoy your particular poetic form.

There were several wonderful lines in this piece. And much to think about.

I love that "watercolor"! Amazing what you can do with photoshop.

NaiasaiKu...I love haiku, and create it often for a blog post (not terribly well, but I have fun trying). I'll have to try my hand at this. It will probably be my undoing as just 3 lines of a haiku are hard enough!
Your NaiasaiKu is wonderful. I can imagine the old woman (in my mind at least).
