cold rain
lavender neon surrounds
a sex shop window

(in my first comment were too many typos, so...)

your lavender neon-haiku is interesting, Bill!

in my childhood old ladies liked lavender fragrance (especially in church, especially in front of me...)

and now "lavender neon surrounds a sex shop"!

i can hear the ghosts of these mentioned ladies, they whisper: "Oh, look at this and this and....."

best wishes,

a sad smile perhaps
rain and artificial hope and light

And, floots and polona, I'm not sure why it registered with me as haiku. I suppose the promise of some kind of warmth, however forced or artificial(perhaps especially because it feels artificial) in the cold rain had something to do with it. And Angelka's point about "lavender," which I didn't have consciously in mind, played a part as well, I suspect.
