Carpe Diem Ghost Writer *”Richard Wright on Autumn” by Jen of Blog It Or Lose It*

Jen of Blog It Or Lose It has invited us to revisit haiku by an African-American author Richard Wright (1908-1960):

* * *
The chill autumn dusk
Grows colder as yellow lights
Come on in skyscrapers.

* * *
As the popcorn man
Is closing up his wagon,
Snow begins to fall.

* * *

Here are my haiku, inspired by the ones of Richard Wright:

* * *
instead of ice-cream truck
tinkling through the autumn fog
patio wind chimes

* * *
encased
in a frozen puddle
a little yellow leaf

* * *
late November
catching first snowflakes in yard
neighbour’ s husky

* * *
