City Haiku

I can't seem to stop writing poetry or reading poetry. I think it is safe to say I love poetry and I love sharing great poetry with others.

In Hickory shade

I complain of being old

without some sunlight

City tree barren

as barren as the city

where I have found pace

Even this old bench

moves slightly every season

as I take a seat

Many colored lights

different colors different day

a life of refraction

        I could feel an ambient sense of movement. Nice.

        Light and shade create mood and pace, I find. I like the reflection in this poem of refraction, Jamie!
