May 15 prompt: reality and illusion
Today is the birthday of L. Frank Baum, best known as the author of “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz”. As a child, I remember being totally disillusioned when in the movie version, Toto pulls back the corner of the curtain, thus revealing the Wizard to be a charlatan. Write a haiku about reality or illusion, or better yet, a jux of the two.
In these dark waters
drawn up from my frozen well…
glittering of spring
