Carpe Diem #119, Windmill

Today’s Carpe Diem Haiku Prompt is Windmill, provided by YerPirate of Tea with a Pirate.

As has become my recent trend, I give you three attempts at haiku today.

The first in honour of the Australian Outback windmill.
For the second, I return to Greek Gods.
And the last could be ‘En homage’ to a Parisian icon and a great artist – or perhaps the effect on ones bladder of too much wine…

Saviour in a sunbaked land
Turns whine to water

Moulin Rouge by night
Too much wine, women and song
So, Toulouse-Lautrec

Thank you for dropping by and taking a tilt at my windmills.
