Ph: Haiku: Global Warming Montage - Poem by Brian Johnston

planetary caution
shards of ice slow river's flow -
wet dreams in winter

pieces float seaward
season's broken spirit weeps -
humpty dumpty earth

glaciers slide downhill
seasonal creep advancing -
uncertain future

man's season fading
haikus yellow stains on snow -
postcards mailed to self

December 11,2015 - Brian Johnston

off-color sunsets
red sea's poisonous algae -
men impacting earth

serendipity -
contrails block infrared light
man goose not cooked yet

    Wonderful chain of haikus!

    I like the shards of ice slow river’s flow -

    that gives birth to

    wet dreams in winter...such interesting thought. ha!

    also, the personification of the 'broken season's spirit' that causes a 'humpty dumpty' earth is beautiful. A concrete imagery I suppose.

    And of course, as seasonal creeps get closer, the future, as usual, cannot be known with certainty.

    The last one seems to be hiding something interesting, Is Brian suggesting to us that, his haiku is just like urine that is being as used as an ink in writing in snows? ha!

    I believe he will answer that.

    Great works of artistic value! Keep it up!
