The haikuhorizons prompt this week is “match”. Of course…I went a bit dark.
The twins clothing matched
Mother insisted on it
They weren’t very pleased.
It was cute in youth
But they aged – mom got them bows.
The neighbors would stare.
When she disappeared
Mom’s absence was notable –
They no longer matched.

Why did I chuckle at this? 🙂 I found it quite hilarious. Except for the image of the two girls… *shudders*
Haha. And yes. I don’t think I’ve watched that movie all the way through. *double shudders*
Hooray for haikus! They are a beautiful way to honor creativity and expression. Great job!
Sometimes twins can be really spooky.
They are kind of creepy sometimes. Especially when they’re identical.
That’s great! So creepy! And it does make me think of the twins in The Shining. What a fun challenge!
I love the haikus!
Hehe. You weren’t kidding when you said dark. I liked it though!
Creepy, but also interesting. 🙂
Wow! A brilliant one..
Yup. Must be one of those days.
