mauve at evening –

snow makes the street

a better story



starred to death

in the weather’s glass


These poems were written in response to Carpe Diem Special #37, the second haiku by Richard Wright “in the falling snow”, another great prompt hosted by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. All of the poems in the link-up can be read here.

  1. “mundanity / starred to death” — what an interesting way to put it! It’s not a gentle dying-away — it’s put to death.

    And always, your writing is so elegant.
