Mauve

 

mauve at evening –

snow makes the street

a better story

 

mundanity

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.

Skeletons of Streets

 

Skeletons of streets

When the phosphor of deep frost

And the moon conspire

This poem was written for Carpe Diem Special #116, Tomas Tranströmer’s “and the frigid sea”, 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 wrap things up in a chilly, romantic fashion, here’s Cat Power.
