Twins

 

Haiku 9

Identical twin

My stereoisomer

Synchronicity

 

Haiku 10

My mirror image

Look to you, who look to me

Identically!

 

Two haiku to choose from today! Which do you prefer and why?

Indicate Haiku 9 or Haiku 10 in the comments below. Results tomorrow.

 

post script: Which do I prefer? I think Haiku 9. Even though most people probably haven’t heard of stereoisomers, it exactly describes what I mean; mirror images. Also,Β synchronicity has nothing to do with twin images! But I liked that this one word had the required five syllables. I thought that identically also had, for purposes of the metre – but google pronounces it identikly, and not identi -call-Eee. So that doesn’t quite work!

    Synchronicity does make sense to me! Just like when I look at my tree branches on the snow, I think of an echo, even though the word is usually associate with sound πŸ™‚ I vote for 10 because I like the flow of the words when I read them aloud…and I read “I dent ic cal lee” so the haiku has a light fun air to it because I have a twin sister!

        That’s the beauty of blogging and exchanging views! The other part of this goes like:

        Between two evils choose none.

    I like the first of course because I like learning new words/things. And I was googling stereoisomer before I even finished reading the poem or got to your comment about it!!! So there! LOL

        Yes, I’m voting #9.
        I was just typing out loud with the other voices in my head about why I had to vote #10 down. It has it’s merits, but #9 pulled through. Signed, Me, Myself & I.
        So, is that 3 votes for #9??
