Make (It) Up

Image by Margaret Bednar

With a bit of gloss
I turn this everyday dross
into some fool's gold.

For Haiku Heights and the Sunday Challenge at Real Toads.

Ah, but fools gold is every bit as pretty to the untrained eye! I'd say she has a lot of gloss on, but it works for her.

Fireblossom said...

Yes, but how do you look in a pink net skullcap?

Kerry O'Connor said...

I think MZ could work the look!

Sylvia K said...

Sounds right to me!

De said...

Fantastic! :)

Grace said...

Good one MZ ~

Brian Miller said...

it works for the fools....

Sioux said...

Yes, the hat/skullcap is tres chic.

And yes--make up could definitely be called "fool's gold."

I think she's got more than gloss working on those lips. But for a severed head, she's not doing too bad.

Peggy said...

Nice one!

Mary said...

Clever, MZ!

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

I imagine the fool likes it very much! :)

awakenedwords said...

yes, but it often boils down to what we can do we can do with what we have. nice

It would ruin the haiku syllable count, but my mind read the last line as "into some old fool's gold."

Kay L. Davies said...

Oooh, nice, MZ, very very nice. So subtle it smacked me right in the face. Way to write!

Nice play on words.

Excellent word play with "gloss" and "some fool's gold." It's easy to gloss things over so that you look shiny to the fools.

And if you don't know what you're doing or who you are, then by golly, make it up until you can find a way to figure it all out (for real).

Have you considered doing Rick's September haiga challenges? You could use your photography, and you're a natural at writing haiku.
