Haiku – Bullseye

Haiku Heights September challenge – day 22 – prompt ‘Bullseye’

bullseye gobstoppers
mums favourite childhood sweet –
kept me quiet for hours

~~

victim in his sight
Cupid lets fly his arrow –
your heart his bullseye

~~

pollen collector
aims for the flowers bullseye –
honeymaker busy

  1. Mike,
    All the 3 are beautiful haiku. A satisfied child, Cupid struck it right and a busy bee. It runs the whole gamut of a growing individual from childhood to adult. Fascinating!

    Bullseye gobstoppers…
    Love it…”Bullseye gobstoppers”…such a ring to the pair of words.
    Enjoyed the other two, also, but the phrase “bullseye gobbstoppers”
    will have to be worked into my conversations for a while !

  3. All three are good, Mike; the first one made me smile. Couldn’t help but think Mom might have liked to have a few of those on hand to deal with my brothers and me. 😉
