At the suggestion of blogger Noah the Great, we leave you stranded.

plain white paper
beckons for spill of words
wordsmith stranded

white sanctuary
enfolds the spirit inside
origami paper

stone throwers
glass house

An original take on 'stranded. I love the origami haiku and the visual.

I love every one of them. If I had to pick guess it would be the first, having felt it.

all so gorgeous...& i am especially drawn to the idea of a 'stranded wordsmith' as a metaphor for writer's block.

I like yours better than mine!

Roswila said...

That third one gave me quite some pause, being so minimalist. But I think it really works.

It's true that the lack of words is frustrating.

I loved every single one of those too much to choose just one. Great work.

These all are so well done; the minimal nature enhances the message.

I love the origami poem: the paper does seem to release a spirit, especially the cranes.

Every line is says so much. Wonderful!

Wonderful my friend. Oh I have been stranded here before.
As always great word play and flowing words.


Raven said...

These are all lovely. I especially like the first one. I'm really having to think about the glass house one which is always a good thing.

Gemma Wiseman said...

O the poor wordsmith. How he/she suffers for art. But what exquisite suffering.

Great write!
