A Collect Call from Mars

image: epic mahoney


from the sky
an iridescent phone booth's
alluring aura

a magnetic coax
neon lit charismatic charm
drew the curious man

the inner depths
gateway to a cosmic land
to enter; risky

How cool is that photo.....and how creative is that take on it. Risky plus mysterious makes for a wonderful adventure sometimes. Very cool.

Laurie Kolp said...

I originally only had the first haiku, but added the second and third... what do you think?

Helen said...

Helena said...

Love this, Laurie! I was also very intriqued by the lavender glow. Really enjoyed the way you described it:

"an iridescent phone booth's
alluring aura

a magnetic coax
neon lit charismatic charm"

All three work well together. I like how the haiku's share a linked story. Risky business for sure. Thank you for sharing, Laurie.

Eva Gallant said...

Eerie, in a Twilight Zone kind of way!

Mary said...

Risky indeed, but in life sometimes one MUST take risks.

Patricia Anne McGoldrick said...

Dr. Who would love this!

Time travel...one never knows. :) I like this.

Dave King said...

For me this works equally well as three individual haiku or a poem of three verses.

Mimi Foxmorton said...

Superb!
I'd DEFINITELY take a chance!

Lyn said...

I'm glad he took the chance...Jupiter and beyond?? Great..

Trellissimo said...

It might have been a wrong number . . just a thought.

You can feel how hard it is for him to resist. I like ‘alluring aura’ and the three haiku together work really well, with just a that little question mark hanging - whether he took the risk or not.

Carrie Burtt said...

Like your Si Fi take on the photo Laurie....awesome! :-)

Kat Mortensen said...

Nice tanka. I love the "magnetic coax".

Mary Mansfield said...

I think I'd be answering that call!

Mystic_Mom said...

Very cool take on the photo prompt...I love your words!
