Beautiful take on the prompt. My personal favorites are the 3rd and 4th ones and as always your image complements amazingly!

anthonynorth said...

All excellent, but the creative process in the 3rd is the best.

Annie Jeffries said...

Thanks for the fun reminder of Pac-Man. Even the fun music is now in my head. I'm chewing through my Monday workday now chomping as I go.

I so like "mind to paper"--it is a beautiful rendering of mysterious, shared creativity.

Quiet Paths said...

I am honestly envious of your ability to paint your inner windows so vividly. And these lines are perfect for the prompt.

Kathie Brown said...

Well, you certainly got inspiration from this prompt! I like the last haiku the best. What fun you had!

I love the white vinca growing out of the night, and that the adjacent window is dark.

your haiku are vibrate with color and movement.

"Mind to paper" is my favorite, too...but each one presented such a visual image! Lovely.

I love the different types of windows you came up with for this prompt. That Pac Man one took me back. Btw, I love your fractal. Have a great night.

Jeeves said...

Lovely ones. First one is my fav.

Jim said...

These are all nice, Sue. I love the thought of word painting, I took it off the bottom of my OSI's.
Our daughter's old Pac Man game is sitting on my desk top at this moment. I love the way he stalks. Our computers will accomodate that now.
I will pick the third one as being artistic in nature. Both in the art and writing realms.

I like the third one, an artist's imagination can stretch from within

Geraldine said...
