Lonely in the Frost

 

droplets

no longer flow together

lonely in the frost

 

lonely in the frost

the crunch of white grass stays

long after

This poem was written in response to Carpe Diem #632, Frost, another great prompt hosted by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. All of the poems in the link-up can be read here. And, to finish, here’s the prettiest song about loneliness, from Love –

  1. Now this is very, very interesting — the sound of the crunch which seems to pierce the loneliness and hang in the air — but also, there’s a question implied here, isn’t there? “Long after ….. what?” And — the first haiku has a lonely-in-the-middle-of-the-crowd feel to it. Wow.

    Here’s hoping your Christmas is a bright one, Blake — full of laughter and joy. 🙂

    • Ah thanks, Jen – it’s been nice and… Christmassy. And I hope you’re having a lovely day, too, having fun and letting the muses indulge with a “tipple” or two 🙂

      • Hi there —
        I’ve been sick all day — believe it or not. How ridiculous! No tipple today, sadly. But — everyone is otherwise doing well.

      • Oh what a shame – the day of the year when you really want to be feeling your best 😦

        Take it easy, then, and I hope you’ll be feeling better soon and still get a chance to enjoy some of the festive cheer.

      • Thanks Blake 🙂

        Glad to have written the CDHK prompts already; today I’m sprawled on the couch watching Jeeves and Wooster. 🙂

        Hopefully you’ll get a chance to watch some Marx Brothers 😉

      • Well, that’s a nice way to relax 😉 Is it the Fry and Laurie episodes? Perfect comfort watching, if so.

        Strangely enough, my brother and I went into a bit of a Marx Brothers routine today –
        “But… that’s bigamy!”
        “It’s big o’ me, too – let’s be big!”
        😀

      • Yup – Fry and Laurie – loving it, too 😉

        “Let’s be big ” — priceless 😉
        As of today, the kiddo has every Marx Bros movie. Unique tastes for a 13 year old. I love it 😉

      • Marx Brothers and Edgar Allan Poe – that’s pretty exceptional taste for any 13 year old, I think. And you can’t go wrong with the classics 🙂

    • And I’m glad you liked this because, I must say, it’s one that I was fairly pleased with 😉 As you say, elements of concrete detail mixed with hints of…

      Plus… it all got written quite quickly! So I’m finally prepared to forgive you for that infamous 7-minute haiku 😛

      Now I just need to remember how it happened…….
