The Haiku Challenge 2012

The Haiku Challenge 2012 – Day 11 – Vision

It is Day 11 and the prompt is: write a haiku inspired by this image:
Day 11:
She gifted him sight
Gave the windows to her soul
Love is indeed blind.
He borrowed her eyes
Through them she saw again, the
beauty of this world
Pledge your eyes today
leave a legacy that will
make you immortal

Written for The Haiku Challenge 2012 – Day 11 – February 11th – Theme: Paint the Image

    It took me awhile before I could understand what was happening in that picture, but I loved your haikus. I thought the second one was especially powerful with the strength of its imagery and the lovely message. Well done!
