  8. Very clever! A modern touch to the haiku!

  9. Beautiful shot . Hello Dustus, I do pray you are having a great weekend. Hugs Viola

  10. I had to get my dictionary out to find out what diaphanous meant. LOL I now love the line ‘Diaphanous curtains swim.’

  11. Hahah cool! I took a different approach to the summer tired, moreover focusing on summer’s heat, which I could relate with. Here’s mine

  12. I love that word for some reason, perhaps the sound of it. lol TY, Ann πŸ™‚

  13. Captured the look well in the word diaphanous and brought it round with iphonic – crisp!

  14. H John. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

  15. Definitely, I like. Always impressed with the exquisite discipline of good haiku.

  16. it is an “exquisite discipline.” Well said, Joanne. It’s become one of my favorite forms over the last few monthsβ€”always a humbling challenge to practice. Thanks for stopping by πŸ™‚

    Very cool!!! “Iphonic” love that!!!! πŸ™‚ ~ Now someone needs to come up with a “creative writer’s dictionary” of the bunches of fascinating words designed in poetry, haiku and general creative writing. Or is Iphonic a real word, darn maybe I need to look that up, I’ve never heard of… ;D ~ Great job Adam! ~ πŸ™‚ April

  30. Not sure if the word has any standard definition, April. I just googled “iphonic” and it returned 134,000 instances of it for various things. I had no idea. lol That’s a cool idea about a creative writer’s dictionary, especially now with so many technology-influenced terms πŸ™‚ Cheers

  31. Great Haiku.
    I seemed to lose my way last Weds as no-one popped over to mine from the One Stop crowd, so hopefully I’m back on track.
    I love your haiku ‘button’, where did you get it? :O)

    • Sorry to hear nobody stopped by, Madeleine. That’s not right. Sorry, still working out the OS format…. The button I made in Photoshop once I found the characters.

  32. First of all, I love the photo with the writer’s block caption. So guess we turn around and go the other way.
    Took me a while to figure out the i-phone photo but your haiku saved me.

  33. Thanks for stopping by, Victoria. I definitely will be turning around πŸ™‚

  34. smiles KB

  35. Loved the “iPhonic”. I’m so totally going to steal that word! (Obviously, I’m an iPhone addict…) This was a great haiku! Thanks so much for your visit to Life is Good and your insightful comment. I too hope things change…that rant was spawned by an ongoing feud between my insurance company idiots and my doctors…sigh.

  36. Thanks, Tina. The word’s all yours. lol I’m an iPad addict myself πŸ™‚

  37. tricky. indo haiku. sweet!

  38. Diaphanous curtains swim…….
    This invokes the Isley brothers ‘Summer Breeze’ to me Adam! Love it:)

  39. Nice! I like that song, Lynda πŸ™‚

  40. Diaphanous…love that word.

  41. Inventive & creative! Cool.
