I Wrote a Haiku :-)

My prodigous literary output of 2012 has now reached three lines and 10 words.  I composed the following at about 5 a.m. the other morning.  You can probably guess my inspiration.

“Winter Haiku”

Scraping asphalt bare

Plows sound through the arctic air

Interrupting sleep

Thanks for listening!  🙂

      Thanks, Dale! That was one of those that “felt right” the moment I came up with it so I jotted it down. 🙂

    Some poems are inspired by passionate love. Others by war or death or the glories of nature.

    But only a precious few arise from snow plows and interrupted sleep.

      Ha ha! Very nicely put. One never knows where the next idea might come from…

    I love this! I like poems and photos that deal with the everyday, the commonplace.

      Hi Nan,
      Thanks so much! I’m really happy you liked it. 🙂 I’m with you in regards to taste. When art deals with something universal or “common” it’s potential to really resonate is greatly increased.

    There’s a photographer who does this with pictures rather than words. He takes pictures that I love- falling down buildings, street scenes, litter, etc.
