Ordinary



Image: Google images

Ordinary lass
Plain Jane gets attention ..why?
Other than just good looks!

Ordinary days
Stress bound tight, worries irksome
Astound the lone soul

No ordinary
relationship. A Craiglist
damning, unguarded

Written for Haiku Heights #148 with prompt - ordinary

  5. Ordinary can be a pain
    Makes one pop a vein
    But also can be nice
    Guess that's just life's price

    Appreciate the goodness and help thru Craighlist. But they included some wayoff things that created controversies. Personals (man looking for men)apparently was 'co-related to increase of syhpilis. 'Craiglist killers' got victims from there. Adult section discontinued but now under differently named sections apparently encouraged prostitution and child porno.

    It's damning if we're unguarded so I thought. Thanks for feedback.

  11. All completely different directions for the prompt ... very interesting, Hank! Plain Janes have much to offer; supporting, "Never judge a book by its cover!" :)

    Thank you for your visit. Have a great week!

  13. Nothing is ordinary which is looked at as extraordinary. It has been said that Picasso could look at a hole in the carpet and paint something extraordinary from it. (Not an exact quotation, but it makes the point, I think.)
    Enjoyed the haiku, the first especially.
