2012 November PAD Chapbook Challenge- Day 16
Today’s guest prompt by Joseph Mills is to use the last line of the poem we wrote yesterday, to start our poem today. There is a pleasing symmetry to this. Here was my haiku from yesterday:
from the sun
And here’s my haiku for today, with shades of the Day 9 prompt woven in as well:
only bare branches
after you’re gone
“Autumn leaves” is (still!) an autumn kigo. It seems only fitting to write the second haiku, as we raked up the last leaves from the ginkgo yesterday. It was, as always, quite glorious last week with its golden leaves. More poetic responses can be read on the Poetic Asides blog.
