This is Alan Pizzarelli leading a renku session
at the special Haiku North America 2012
Haiku Retreat at Asilomar
which Yuki Teikei co-sponsored with HNA and other haiku groups.
HAIKU RAILROAD BLUES
along the railroad track
as the train passes
the heads of geese
pop out of the tall grass
snow falls from trees
of passing boxcars
far down the railroad tracks
the brakeman's lantern
gets lost among the fireflies
a train horn
fades into the distance
Frozen Socks; new and selected short poems,
House of Haiku, 2015, page 182.
I have just bought my copy of Alan's new book, Frozen Socks!
It makes wonderful reading. I am amazed at the variety of things the author does with short forms. I especially like his arrangements of the text on the page, which I have tried to reproduce here as well as I could within Blogger's limits. You could easily spend $12.99 on something with a lot less nourishment in it. jhh
