Who Permits It


who permits it

as white-tipped wings flutter gold

through dead leaves


This poem was written in response to Carpe Diem Special #122, Richard Wright’s 3rd haiku “The Violet Beds,” 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 are the White Stripes singing about mulch.
