haiku one eight six.

Hello all!

I have been struggling (oh what a surprise) a bit over the last few days. I’ve been really trying to imbue my haiku with meaning. I feel like I’m failing completely. Should I even go into it and possibly ruin the mystique of my poems? Or is that an insult to the 10 people who actually read this blog? Maybe my double entendre’s/meanings are blindingly obvious! Feel free to let me know. Firstly a revision from yesterday.

parklands provide lodgings

neon lights and the window

summer night rain

summer downpour

a damp smell in the hotel

summer rain

steam rises from

the path light

Ok that’s an awful lot of use of the words “summer” and references to rain. What can I say It rained a lot today.

Thanks for reading!
