All Our Final Straws


all our final straws

hanging on for one last fling

in the scarecrow’s arms


This poem was written in response to Carpe Diem Special #123, Richard Wright’s 4th “the scarecrow’s old hat”, another great prompt hosted by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. All of the poems in the link-up can be read here.

  1. Hm. If I’m reading this correctly, this scarecrow sounds like a helluva lotta fun. 😉

    And if I’m not … well … I need to get out more often. o.O

    • I wanted to play on the dual meanings, certainly. so your reading is fine 😉

      Although if you do catch yourself daydreaming about scarecrows.. .yeah, probably get out a bit more 😀
