Haiku For Carpe Diem #238, Affection

Affection is our Haiku prompt of the day from Carpe Diem.

I suspect I may test your affection today with this marathon selection of haiku written to compliment images of a life-time…

Grandmas Been

try to accept it
like babies


childhood affection
secrets, loves and longings shared
pinky promises

Toe Art…Love & Care by Vinoth ChandarImage by Vinoth Chandar

a toast to
the affection of
soul mates

VMAQ-2 Marines return from Afghanistan


may you know times
when joy, love and affection
are understatements

Old Couple By Ian MacKenzie

as autumn leaves fall
on the park bench where they met
it feels like springtime

Skeletons By Michael Tyler

to the end of time
despite fatal affliction
affection remains

Welcome! I’m so pleased you made it this far down for which you have my undying affection and admiration *doffs his hat and bows deeply*

Smiles, love and laughter

    Crowd favorite is the autumn leaves – I like it too. But I also love the first one. Sometimes accepting affection is a choice. And that last image is haunting. Really great collection!

    It’s 1:49 am. Finally getting to Carpe Diem or any online writing today except for a few tweets. I did see these on my phone this morning and loved them. Beautiful haiku, humor or not, all capturing affection. I would say affection was sometimes more important than many other emotions. Thank you for this treat, JRB!


  15. The before last haiku is extraordinary JRB. All nicely written haiku … and those photo’s awesome.
