4 Seasonal Haiku - Poem by jan oskar hansen


Snows only purpose?
To make my garden look good
Four months a year


Shadows and light
In an unseemly embrace
Foolish April Dance


In the middy heat
Mules seeks shady carob trees
Man seeks the beach.


Morning sadness
Rain trickles down the window
Grey October sky.

    Just because you make a word plural doesnt mean it has two syllables... faget. (Report)Reply
