Books & Other Passions
I like this, as a poem, but not as a haiku. One of the characteristics of haiku is that it does not use metaphor. I just call mine "small poems" and avoid the whole issue. But you might want to check out my haiku links, under POETRY LINKS on the Watermark sidebar, or on my 's m a l l p o e m s' site.
SB,I hear you. haiku is more than many of us mistake it to be. I'm cool with 'small poem' and thanks for the references.
It might be a small poem but it left me thinking--know it's a metaphor yet was actually trying to visualize itThe metaphor was better :)
What a beautiful blog! I like the layout and it has a unique style of writing to it. I have given you a link on Free Poems and I would be very happy if you would like to link back.
