Haiku "Hats", 123 -125/365


  Seductive allure
Think Bogart, Gable, and Wayne
The dashing, suave hat

I am participating in a Haiku challenge for the month of February.  One haiku a day for 28 days.  Todays challenge is "freestyle".  Every other day of the month has a theme.  Please click on the blue to see other entries.


These photos are for "Patterns & Repetition in February".  My son has always loved hats and he bought one of the hats in the top photo this past weekend.  We also checked the suit jackets and ties out.  The hat is today's submission and the 2nd & 3rd photo are for Wednesday & Thursday.  The ties are for this week's Back & White Wednesday.

Patty Ann - I love hats too, but don't look good in them. My 18 year old son has been wearing fedoras since he was 12!

Rosie - I love that you think my photography is gorgeous. I so enjoy yours and I'm just trying to catch up!

Cloakedmonk - Poetry does make one delve into their thoughts - I guess that is why I have been enjoying it so much...

Ruth - I hope I'm up for the challenge - I do find myself intrigued by haikus. It is fun to scramble for just the right words in a limited space! Thank you - I will be posting your wonderful bluebird on Friday - so that he can stay there all weekend on my blog.

Someone Special - Thank you for hosting this fun challenge. It was a great idea.

Mommy2Four - :) Glad you liked it! - I can see from your blog you are just as busy as me.

That is a good haiku. Very clever! Love your pictures. You went to the perfect place for these shots : )

Bonnie said...

Great creative choice to show the menswear in black and white - like the flicks of those great men mentionned in your haiku.

Ginnie said...

To be honest, Margaret, I always loved shopping for menswear much more than ladieswear! :D

Margaret Bednar said...

Kaishon - thank you. We do like the Macy's sales!

Bonnie - Oh, I SO love the old movie stars. Gregory Peck a personal favorite. ...sigh!

Ginnie - ha ha. ;)
