Every day visits*
From Moose, Goose, and Orb Weaver
All seized by Haiku


"Why moose and goose?" you may ask. Back on 2/04/13 Pirate wrote a haiku with an elk in it, and I responded with
one with a moose and then included him every day. A few days later in comments Mystic asked "Where's the goose?"
So I started including her with this post on 2/07. A week later on the 14th, Mark Readfern
asked for and received a spider. The rest is history.

*Well, most days, anyway. Grant me a bit of poetic license.

Carpe Diem Special #103, Jim Kacian's "city morning"

city morning
a crane lifts its shadow
up the wall

I saw the title of this entry and immediately wrote the two haiku found below, without reading further.

It was surprising to find I was rather close to Jim Kacian's wavelength.


no rooster call
wakes the city dweller
honk of a semi

 

~~::~~

old man wakes up
on a cardboard shrouded grate
shambles down the street

~~::~~

duty beckons
 people places things to do
no time for roses

 ~~::~~

  2. You've caught the city in all its grit and glory, using a handful of words.

This is a fun blog. Light-hearted banter is welcome. Snark is not. If you want to fight, find my other blog.

Play nice, and we'll all have fun.

I like to return visit, when I can - but I need to find you. If you have multiple blogs, please leave a direct link to the appropriate post.
