loop de loop
Love this, Tina. 🙂
an acceptance letter
lands on my desk
launched in a paper rocket ship
my X lover
buoyed by the wispiest clouds –
I fold my hands
[…] haiku is in response the doodle on Aubrie Cox’s Yay Words blog, Day #10. Like this:LikeBe the first to like this […]
the last email
fly in the classroom
the last plane takes off
in an inky dusk
the ability to fly —
all those words I thought
I could write
none of the others
meant to land either
finding a use
idea after idea
launched and crashed
inside all day
boys playing war
with unmanned drones
(coming after everyone has gone, scrolling down with my eyes shut…)
our anniversary . . .
I can’t help but try to shift away from the image (as with the verses in haiga and renku), yet also hope to resonate with it in some way. Hope that’s part of what you might be after, Aubrie, or maybe it doesn’t matter.
Michael, I feel like it doesn’t matter—it’s the resonances that I feel are more important. Basically, there’s just more wiggle room—than, say, in traditional haiga, which I’m a very strong advocate of the shift and breaking away from the visual half—to be closer to the image if people want, but don’t let that wiggle room hold you back!

finally let fly
