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

* * *
in a frozen puddle
a little yellow leaf

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

* * *

Carpe Diem Haiku Kai


December 20th

* * *
stumbling through the mud
with snowflakes on my eyelashes
i hold onto hope

* * *

Yes, the guys from the neighbourhood…their song&the video makes me smile and remember the childhood when the snow was whiter and the world was brighter… I would like to hope those things haven’t changed all the way till today  🙂 Even if I have. Or…especially because I have…

PS: By the way – have you tried to drink milk that way?
