nice...an interesting glimpse into a life i know about only through books...intricacies of trade, indeed....
"Mistress of pleasure", indeed...Cool and Hot!!
Hank, I really enjoyed this ... lovely capture of the geisha.
The secrets of Geisha - an imaginative response to the prompt.
The secrets one may not knowAs the legend does growAnd much comes to and froGreat write at your show
I savoured the last line of your poem in the same way I suck on an After Eight at the end of a hearty meal. Many thanks.Greetings from London.
Great depth to this. Excellent.
oh the Secrets of the Geisha...nicely done!
Oh yes, I am a fan of secrets!
Really great haiku set here. Liked your take on the prompt :)
Awww! a map-painted Geisha. Superb.
Yearning to advanceI love that, it held a sense of sadness and a sense of hope.
Nicely done - lovely write.Anna :o]
Like how this prompt got you to work in haiku and think of geisha! enjoyed your take on the prompt!
...oh,, i am surprised to have this accompanied with the Geishas... but yes... it could be as your poem reflects a interesting glimpse to the kind of life of those women bound to hide in white creams to fulfill the inner art in their selves.. excellent take,,, smiles...
