Like a tight weave then
Words unravel like cheap knit
Tangles on the page

written for Haiku Challenge, Day 17, Ravel

I kept reading it for few times till I realized that it's a short one- the words are tangled indeed. The moment I reach the end, the beginning begins automatically!

This is absolutely wonderful, and I like the name of your blog even more. :o) My goal is to some day be able to write such powerful poems with so few words.
