Carpe Diem Sparkling Stars *Jack Kerouac’s “The Summer Chair”*

This week the source of inspiration on Carpe Diem Sparkling Stars are haiku, written by a poet of French-Canadian heritage Jack Kerouac (1922-1969). From all the haiku, chosen by our host Chèvrefeuille, the following one felt the most powerful to me:

* * *
The summer chair
rocking by itself
In the blizzard

* * *

I tried to stay close to the same mood and spirit when writing mine:

* * *
shivering
in the garden hammock
a raindrop

* * *
