awake asleep

one single impression: ochre ; we write poems: 6-8-6 haiku

i never saw anything…. traveling towards somewhere on a freeway in a mindless fog turned my head and saw something so unexpectedly beautiful out in the middle of nowhere the beautiful rich red soil of oklahoma…further on missed the turnoff, got lost, circled a few times finally found my way and headed back in the right direction home … a jumble of word worlds

whimsical wilderness
motorcars mutter fuming schemes
wheelin’ words turnin’ round

concrete lanes two way streets
never mind the one way traffic
puzzling turnabouts

barefoot hi-ho journey
taking tiny unplanned paths
glimpse the ochre soil

oklahoma open
secrets flung arrayed in rainbows
poetic plumes release

invisible wind paint
absorb gritty dirt taste
millions maybe one or two

just passed by an open range
fixed on a flying forgotten
subtle sound fleeing grains

weightless i’ll take some home
closet filled with other world sands
piles and piles stacked

  1. I like how interconnected these English Haiku are. The fifth one is my favourite. Once again, I am captivated by your use of alliteration throughout your pieces. Well done.


  2. Wonderfully written work here! It’s been awhile since I’ve hopped onto this blog as well. It’s funny how the simplest things in life amuse us.Great post!
