haiku - vision

raging headaches
of scary intensity -
scenes of destruction

(inspired by Cordelia's visions in the tv series Angel)

there's another view of visions on Crafty Green Poet here.

Vision for
One Deep Breath

ouch... i don't like the sound of any of that.... very powerful!!!!

Your bracketed explanation added another level to this haiku, but on plain reading it reminded me of those adverts, where a headache or other ailment taints everything you see or do. Very powerful image.

jem - thankfully I don't get headaches that bad, though i know people who do.

paisley - thanks

I get migraines, and positively winced at this one. Yeouch!

I miss that show (I was a fan, though I only stumbled upon it in re-runs).

I used to get migraines (I'm one of the fortunate women sufferers who found as I aged they decreased in frequency until I have maybe one a year now ... thanks be to all the Deities!), so I do identify with it.

I want to know more about the scenes of destruction that are presumably causing the headaches.

spacedlaw said...

No clue what this refers to but not a vision most of us would like.

There's no doubt in my mind that this scene is not so good. Vivid words!

Crafty Green Poet said...

plain foolish - sorry...

roswila - we're watching it all on video just now, we never watched it when it was on tv! Sorry you get migraines, but good that you're getting fewer as you age

watermaid - you'd need to watch the show, its a long story otherwise...

spacedlaw - not too obscure I hope...

tumblewords - thanks!

This reminded me of the one nasty headache I got that was migraine-level ... the explanation added to the image. Very evocative.

Sian said...

Migraines are scenes of destruction and mine come with light displays. Do they count as visions? Evocative post :)

qualcosa di bello said...

a reminder that not all visions are of the positive...very powerful words

Quiet Paths said...

I could really feel this one! Very vivid
