Hello, Murder

 

”hello, murder” –

the words wheel by the black shapes

happily

This poem was written in response to Carpe Diem Sparkling Stars #22, Basho’s “where the hototogisu is singing”, 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 Pogues –

Twilight

 

twilight frost gets ignored

in a doorway, in a basque

in December

 

working in Soho

the street’s damp blooms

in the twilight frost

This poem was written in response to Carpe Diem Special #124, Richard Wright’s last haiku of this month, another great prompt hosted by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. All of the poems in the link-up can be read here.  Admittedly, the prompt took me a long way from Richard Wright’s haiku this time, but ah well… here are The Pogues.
