dueling frida khalo haiku

frida kahlo and haikus go together like manchego and quince paste, so, this was bound to happen. my friend julie submitted the first haiku with the appropriate picture -


I don’t believe you
I will not look behind me
There is no monkey

i could not help but be inspired and pen the following haiku -

how silly you are
frida is not behind me
no, i will not look.

who wouldn’t burst into haiku upon viewing the frida postage stamp? i know i did.
do tell me, frida,
what is that necklace made of?
toasted marshmallows?

and of course, soon my friend angela submitted a new haiku!

O, unibrowed Frida
Your look is Spanish pain, yet
Your paintings rock on…

and then her friend submitted a haiku

eyebrow(s) and mustache,
hombres or chicas, ac or dc.
next, please.

it didn’t take long before charles hamilton found this image and was inspired to write this haiku

Frida, oh good lord!
Thy brow has swallowed him whole.
Is this possible?!

soon katie astounded me with not one, but two lovely haikus and accompanying photos of her in costume


if I were Frida
and monkey were Diego
he’d be on my mind

when I am Frida
monkey is always with me
on my right shoulder

naturally,i could not control myself and penned this little offering.

vibrant! colorful!
what a flamboyant being!
your birds are nice too.

the movie “frida” inspired emily to pen her renowned haiku masterpiece “two fridas”

Frida does not look
As much like Salma as we
We’re led to believe.

halloween costume?
yes, i dress up as frida.
come, just take a look.
