Just a quick one today, as the day is almost over.


Standing in the rain

street lights breaking the darkness

vagrant passes by.


That is all!

    That’s kind of a scary Haiku! I don’t know if I’ve ever read a scary Haiku?

      It is? Well just to let you know, we were actually at a bar, but as you can’t smoke in bars here in Aus you have to go in the street! Also the vagrant was shoeless, and he asked for money, I think I gave him a dollar in small change. So it wasn’t scary in the least. 🙂

    That’s good.
    I pictured myself (who is 5 feet 2 inches) standing in the almost dark, by myself and suddenly a crazy looking person walks past me. And for some reason I pictured it raining, even though you don’t mention rain?? You got my brain working!

    It was raining. That part of the poem is true. I did have an umbrella.
