morning rush
reading "Walden"
on the subway-
I hear the beat
of a different drummer

Is it possible to expand your haiko into tanka?

Thanks, andrew, butterfly, and Rita.
Rita, that's a possibility, but I prefer to let the reader supply that thought, as butterfly has done.

Thank you, aurora and polona.

Polona, it's a book everybody has to read. "If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost. That is where they belong. Now put the foundations under them."

Yes, Pat, reading "Walden" on the subway is quite a rush. Anywhere else, for that matter.

kami, I'm pleased when anyone reads anything on the subway. Anywhere else, for that matter.
