Here are the best of my week, using association:
planting the rose
a drop of blood
or maybe a one liner
planting the rose, blood
Two different things, a rose bush and blood. What is the association? Well I might be pushing it to be honest. The whole haiku is about childbirth. The planting of the rosebush is about giving life, bringing life into the world. More often than not when I’m planting up my roses, I manage to scrape myself one way or another and blood flows. Bringing new life to the world hurts, it draws blood, but the end result is joyous.At least that’s how I felt. Same with planting roses.
A second one:
around a sapphire-
It struck me as I was out riding my bike along the lakeside that the Zürisee or lake Zürich as you might know it, is very much like a piece of jewellery. The lake is the sapphire, the diamonds are the snow capped mountains.
