IN SHADOW: A Modern Odyssey | a short film Haiku Review

Haiku Review Challenge

After watching the short film IN SHADOW: A Modern Odyssey . If you take the Challenge . Write a HAIKU REVIEW leaving your Haiku in the Comment section of this post . Express the views you feel about the ‘Moveable Painting’ [as I like to refer to GREAT short films.]

If this short film doesn’t inspire . A new short will appear next Friday in our Weekly Haiku Review.

The way I write Haiku is using the 5-7-5 syllable combination . I also often write more than one verse. It is an option . not a rule. Enjoy the fun and creativity of 1st) viewing the short film . 2nd) looking for your Haiku and creating it 3rd) sharing it if you so desire.

Here’s to the Haiku Review Challenge
Cheers! – j.kiley

Treasure chests of gold
Mindless brains sucked dry . thought-less
Greed grabs life for guns

Masks replace faces
Dreams inhaled . replaced by pills
Consciousness absorbed

‘Fat Pigs’ gain hollow prize
Cash filled coffins . gun sales great
Life ends . nothing gained
