Haikuode to Greek Goddesses

Those ancient ladies –
alabaster skin, fair hair –
and wingèd – beware!

– James Steerforth (© 2011)

Written for Haiku My Heart at Recuerda Mi Corazón and creating the new haikuode form while at it.

Inspired by the painting* at Recuerda Mi Corazón:

* copied here for convenience – I hope that’s all right.
