It is Day 17 and the prompt is “write a haiku inspired by the image below, for the theme “wait”‘
Waiting to exhale
Watching life stroll by
Perched on a flimsy platform
She awaits her future
The shutters are down
Together, they look forward
One more day will dawn
Written for The Haiku Challenge 2012 – Day 17 – February 17th – Theme or Word: Wait + Paint the Image

I loved your haiku from the first word to last.
Your way with words is so beautifully heart-felt…I feel each one! Thank you:)
Thank you so much, Joy. 🙂 Love you, too!
Thank you, dear Pranali, for the encouraging words!
Waiting is no work for the faint of heart.
Waiting for the Women
🙂 You are right. Patience is such a major virtue! Thanks for coming by!
Your words give a picture of hope to a photo of distress.
Thank you Abby!
“She awaits her future.” I love that you ended with hope and inspiration!
That’s really a great picture!
Thanks, Emily. I imagined her as someone just waiting. 🙂 That shop could be hers!
I just love the first one! Too good! 🙂
Thank you, dear Amber!
Wonder what she’s waiting for Vidya!
May be waiting for the shutter of the shop to open, may be waiting for the day to dawn and people to stop by and give them alms? Truly a picture to think deep about…
Dear Harleena, thanks for your comment. 🙂 I never thought about alms! I was imagining that she owned the shop and had closed for the day 😀 Hugs!
You have found your perfection in this poetry.
Luv You. Xx
Thank you, dearest Kim! Hugs to you!
Heartfelt words.. Beautiful! Thanks for blessing this…
Thank you, Saravana!
My gosh I have not written a Haiku since school days so it was wonderful to be re-acquainted with this beautiful poetry form by your equally beautiful offering.
Maybe she is simply waiting in joy? (en-joy)
Thank you for sharing this with us Vidya. 🙂
Welcome, Marcus! Yes! I imagined she closed shop for the day and was waiting for someone! 🙂 So glad you dropped by!
Touching … glad to see some hope woven within. Thank you for sharing! 🙂
Dear Becca, thank you. This is a common scene we see around here.
This is your niche…your sweet spot in your heart. What a talent. I love everything that you write.
Dear Kimberly! Sniff sniff. Tissue please! You make me feel so emotional! Hugs and thanks for the lovely words! It is all going to my head!
