I saw a picture
on a wall with eyes looking
out into the world;

And then I thought of
what they must be thinking of
'that strange person'; Me.

Its a job well done i have to say. when i look at haikus, i usually have trouble figuring out what they are trying to convey, but this one was easy enough. :) keep writing!

I love perspective writing, and the fact that you could fit that all into six lines, very well done.

Agreed. The perspective is very unique :) I also like that you did more than one haiku instead of lessening it. Keep writing!

I didn't read the author's note until I finished the poem, and it gave the writing a really unique perspective!  At first I thought it was about a mirror, but now I understand.  Good idea!

A haiku is a poem where the first and last line has 5 syllables, and the middle  line has 7!

Kind of creepy, but good idea nonetheless! I like the flow and how you used two haikus instead of just one. Very unique! Really good job on this!

I liked this idea. Writing about inanimate objects is not something I see often. Good job!

Interesting concept.. way to think outside the box and write something very original... Great poem:)

You should write another Haiku about what the portrait sees (or thinks!)

that's just pure epicness! I can't say I've ever read a poem where someone was thinking of what an inaminate oblect was thinking of. Also, great rythmn it flows very well
