Horse Tails


Horse tails of spume

Trail speeding cars after

Autumn cloudbursts


This poem was written for Carpe Diem Ghost Writer #33, Richard Wright on Autumn by Jen of Blog It Or Lose It, another great prompt hosted by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. In this post we were asked to write a late-autumn haiku (in Richard Wright’s style and tone) showing a relationship between man’s realm and nature’s realm. This was my attempt and all of the poems in the link-up can be read here. While the horse’s starring role in the haiku seems like the perfect excuse for some Patti Smith.
