How you managed to make Hopper, one of my fave artists, somewhat sinister, is quite the feat!

Very good answer to the prompt. Made me look at the little figures more closely... eerie! Amy

An excellent touch of the malign in this.

Spooky... I found the picture, dark, somber, lonely too.

Succinct and thought-provoking as always, a treat to visit you.

I sense political intrigue in these few words!

Ooh, I love that "dust to dust" - nice, when I was expecting "dusk". Amazing how a haiku can capture so much, isn't it?

Tess Kincaid said...

Watchful eyes adds a delicious chill...

Jinksy said...

Mmm...I think that house is definitely watching us through half closed, window-blind eyelids...
