#63 Haiku

The first non-visual “Way to See” this month, involving a strict 5-7-5 syllable count.

15 haikus for 15 blocks

#1

Cloudless azure skies

Wonder what lies just beyond

Brooding grey facade

 

#2

The rumble of trains

Streaks of pink and silver-white

A dragon awakes

 

#3

Loud strains of samba

Teddy trapped in metal fence

Unable to dance

 

#4

Gentrification

Edge replaced with stroller-prams

Not a pleasant loss

 

#5

A burst of colour

Dreams of being elsewhere once

Tropical monsoon

 

#6

Buds upon plane trees

Cigarette buds strewn partout

Spring has come too soon

 

#7

Rose on fire escape

Mila Kunis is bored stiff

Cast out festive wreathe

 

#8

Ferry streaking past

Desolation cast in stone

Ruins from Pompeii

 

#9

Metropolitan

Irony of pampas grass

Heated indoor pool

 

#10

Pekinese on wheels

Trepidatious questioning

Mickey crucified

 

#11

London and New York

Pavement of $1 books

Unexpected bliss

 

#12

Juxtaposed skyline

Sun trapped by parking lot

Clearing of rubble

 

#13

Potholes and pilates

Chimpanzees in human dress

Distressed chestnut planks

 

#14

Turn right for Bedford

Nothingness to thoroughfare

Suggestion of pomp

 

#15

Tealights flickering

Wonder what lies just beyond?

Psychedelic life
