morning chill

2012 November PAD Chapbook Challenge- Day 14

Today’s  guest prompt by Catherine Lee is to “write a stuck poem”. I have to admit that I was stuck on this one for awhile, and almost wrote about that! I also thought of a record skipping, a bird flapping to stay in place, a postage stamp, and walking on a treadmill, but nothing really grabbed me, until I got the idea to write about a spider’s web:

the garden spider’s
web in tatters
morning chill

“Morning chill” is an autumn kigo.  More poetic responses can be read on the Poetic Asides blog.
