The phrase "the snap that snatched her soul" is a wonderful one. In just a few lines, you packed a lot in.

(For a poet, brevity is next to godliness!--ha!)

"In the snap that snatched her soul"...it certainly did, didn't it. Sharp and to the point, loved it!

Love the wink you have offered if not truly found there. Great take on the prompt.

…though her days have passed.. her soul was still living within that framed geniuses… amazing haiku… it volumes the connection between the model and the photographer… thanks for the read.(:

Brightest blessings.

Her soul was snatched, but returned with this poem..few words..large scope!

Ann Grenier said...

Skillful Haiku again as always...capturing essence in three lines. Beautifully done.

Margaret said...

yes, it is shuttered - almost like she was going to laugh but trying to repress it...

Grammy said...

I love how you summed this up so wonderfully.

Steve Isaak said...

Succinct and all-encompassing - well done.

Now, THAT's a proper prompt Haiku! I really must attempt them more often. Strange how a few lines can be as struggling to find as a whole passage....but yours is fab!
