Haiku 9

Identical twin

My stereoisomer



Haiku 10

My mirror image

Look to you, who look to me



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!

    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??
