Lather, rinse, repeat – Haiku x 3

Rose petals, velvet

Blood red like her painted lips

Nesting in black hair

Jaded demeanour

Dark circles cradle blank eyes

Feet sore in high heels

Practised linesย she speaks

New day, but the same stories

Lather, rinse, repeat.

      1. Interpreting poetry is very subjective … and so I usually don’t do it … but in this case since you asked … what I see is at first a lady of the night … tired of walking the streets the same lines the same life of pleasing others she doesn’t exist for herself … then I reach the last line and I think … but she is a hair dresser! What ever she is, she’s most certainly tired an weary, a little crabby and needs a change of scene ๐Ÿ˜‰

      2. Fantastic interpretation! I really loved reading your ideas on this piece. Miss Red Lips definitely does need a change of scene ๐Ÿ˜€ I guess I wrote in a universal sense, leaving it slightly open-ended so that the readers can relate and empathise better.


      1. You’re so precious!! Hey, I’m thinking of starting a 2nd blog–an online cookbook….any chance you’d like to provide me a good and fairly simple curry recipe, or any other Indian recipe that’s a favorite of yours??

      2. I’ve just barely got it started, but I’m excited…so I’ll let you know when it’s official. Probably it will work best for you to email your recipes–and I can transfer them to that blog; so I’ll give you that email when the time comes, ‘kay!
