Haiku Hullabaloo

I’ve been immersed in the Chinese “Rivers and Mountains” poetry lately, and today is one of those days (daze?) that puts one into a haiku frame of mind (yes, haiku are Japanese, but eh, so be it!).

*     *     *

Pikes Peak, shivering

in the morning dew —

would you like my coat?

*     *     *

The mere trembles

ripples shivering as

the fog settles on its skin.

*     *     *

Yes, not proper haiku but Kerouackian and for that they are good enough.

Back to work on this Prufrockian morning.
