From the Lighthouse


from the lighthouse

jagged beams search the black shapes –

a blind cat’s wail


This poem was written in response to Heeding Haiku With HA: Noise, another great prompt hosted by HA at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie. All of the poems in the link-up can be read here. And, to finish, here’s Blind Willie McTell –

  1. Now this is an incredibly potent image – it could be a magnificent Film Noir opening scene! (The poor blind kittie!)

    And the tune — what a hoot! “I got two women and you can’t tell them apart” // “Now I’m gonna punch you in the nose!” LOL!!!!

    • Oo you’re right. I hadn’t thought of a film noir scene… The lighthouse. The cat wails. A body falls from the rocks into the sea… :O

      I almost added Bob Dylan’s song ‘Blind Willie McTell’, which is amazing, but I haven’t had blues on here for a while. Plus it’s a hoot 😉

    • I’m pleased you like the imagery – a lighthouse is always quite evocative, so I was glad I was able to use it here. Thanks Aquileana, and have a lovely weekend 😉
