The exercise:

Your Two Haiku Tuesday prompt this week: sight.

This morning I had the pleasure of getting some laser surgery done on my eyes to correct an issue I've been having for a while now. It seemed to go well and now I'm back to being stuck at home for another two days. Work must love me.

Side note: it is my intention that this is the last time the word surgery will appear in the top half of my posts. I've had enough, thank you.


My eyes are open
and all they want to look at
is, quite simply, you.

Like, I dunno Jess.
A blind date? Like, how will we,
like, find each other?

Both haikus are good; the first is neat and pretty, and the second one... well, both amuses and reminds me how proud I am of my age demographic's sophisticated language use... ><

Anyway. Moving on.

The finishing line
Is in close grasp, in close sight...
and yet, oh so far.

Oh, don't fret over
this sudden lack of vision...
everything's just fine...

I was just thinking. I've had an idea for a Lunacy bit brewing haphazardly in the back of my mind... I need to tweak it a bit, but I'm thinking it's well overdue, no?
(and to think I was bugging you about taking such a long time to follow up...)

More surgery? You must have a fancy for a surgeon, that's all I can say! Or perhaps it's the other way around, some surgeon somewhere can't look at you without getting an urge to operate. I think that may not be such a good thing....
If I were stuck at home for two days like that, work would expect me to telecommute....
But, overall, I hope the surgery has worked and you're pleased with it!

I prefer your first haiku, but your second made me smile.
@g2: Again, I prefer your first haiku, but I'd quite like to see the story behind the second haiku continued!


Your bed-head and your
Messed-up hair: You truly are
A sight for sore eyes


Storm-swept skies brighten,
Cranes take flight, warmed by sunlight,
I watch gratefully

Too bad about the surgery, Marc. I hope your recovery continues to go well.

Look in my eyes now
Really look -- can you see me,
Who I truly am?

Yes -- I can see you
The true self shining behind
Your serious eyes.

g2 - I like your second haiku best :)

And I'd love to see Lunacy continued! Although I reckon my general not bugging you about how long its been might come in handy when I take just as long to follow yours up :D

Greg - your second haiku was pretty much exactly what I was looking for out of this prompt. Gratitude for the gift of sight.

Morganna - thank you, so far so good :)

And I do like me some connected haiku - nicely done.

Thanks, Marc.
