The Daily Haiku from Carpe Diem

Carpe Diem's Haiku Prompt: Castle

spiral-staired towers
crenelated walls, dungeons
make castles and men

castle medieval
stone cold and swamp damp within
we are safely kept

neurotics' sky-castles
wherein dwell psychotics
while shrinks collect rent

blue-backed playing cards
all holding each other up
don't bump the table!

where once was glory
now a skeleton of stones
haunting a low hill


  1. Nice variety of castle views.

    You have a sense of irony.


  2. How glory has a habit of disintegrating! Interesting haiku!

  3. where once was glory -- i like that
    3rd haiku made me chuckle ^^
    love the image of a medieval castle
    and make castles and men - great line! :)
