  1. The haiku is seriously sad
    set in funny language
    So, I can’t help laughing
    How you play with these paints
    And their names, belonging to the collection of About-face.

    Sorry about the pain and sorrow

    1. Well said! There is joy but sorrow comes with it. The yin yang of all things. This was a photo prompt from Sadje. I had to go where the photo took me. Life is the balance in all things. A rose has thorns…
      In this world we will have troubles. But He is with us. Amen

      1. Yes, you did mention that Sadje set the image as prompt
        Reflective photography expressing a poignant love story, depression or tragedy, were my first thoughts.
        It’s your wording that made me smile and laugh, after I found out that about-us is actually the name of a makeup brand. And then i saw emotional mascara, there too I was amused thinking that you are playing with words. Sadly funny.
        The yin-yang
        Rose & thorns
        Brings context.
        Thank you.
