Discord


anger tossed ranting
boomerangs through static air
words return to wound

discord paints
with
chaotic brush

Ooh, love the first line, especially. Terrific.

Ouch. Nothing hurts more than words said in anger. I don't like the pic either.
This hits home!

Angry words would make this a messy painting ~

Happy day ~

You are tight with your comment on my post. This is rather sad but nicely penned though. I have thought of something scarry and sad too at first but I opted to make it fun instead...

There is much unhappiness in your poem. Painfully well expressed. Thank you for sharing.

Karen said...

I saw this painting as chaotic as well. A great haiku.

Kay L. Davies said...

I love the last stanza, so very true. Discord does paint with a chaotic brush.

Excellent capture, especially the last three lines:
"...discord paints
with
chaotic brush"

Brian Miller said...

Anger certainly boomerangs. Nice one.

Cad said...

You painted a strong image, too...

Grammy said...

Well done. :)

It was right in front of me and I have to agree with Jinksy.

Little Nell said...

You certainly ‘saw red’ in this. I could feel the rage bubbling through!

Tigerbrite said...

Oh I love it. I looked at this picture for quite some time and checked away mine as rubbish. You have captured it.

Sue said...

Short and to the point.

It works!

=)

Lolamouse said...

Perfect! I also felt the picture was very chaotic.

Helen said...

Love how many Magpie poems focused on the 'boomerang' interpretation .. I did too as I couldn't see anything else. In the eye of the beholder as they say.

That brush'll get you every time. Good piece!

Berowne said...

It's true that words can boomerang, to wound...

Trellissimo said...

Can't argue with chaotic brushes...

Carrie Burtt said...

So much truth here Susie....beautiful writing! :-)

Isabel Doyle said...

Finally got through - I've tried to get to your Mags this year and failed - either couldn't get your post to open at all, or couldn't get your blog to open ... your poem sums up my frustration perfectly!

Best wishes Isabel
