Poem 20141121

Hey. it’s Friday. Let’s try a haiku.

Every teacher assigns these little jewels to their students because they’re just three lines, right? and you just have to have the right number of syllables. I know after reading them and reading about them that it’s not that simple to distill a single moment into something so compact. But I love haiku.

 

on this cloudy day
the hens loiter near the coop
while a hawk watches
