Haiku is to poetry as espresso is to coffee.

wind and rain

I like this one by Frank Williams. You can access his blog by clicking on "Frank Williams" in the list to the left

bitter wind . . .
we take refuge
in a betting shop

I was motivated to this response, based on how things were with me 35+ years ago:

sudden rain
I look for a bar
to stay dry in

It's a special kind of pleasure when another poet's work inspires my own.

John, Warren, polona, and Daniele, thank you. Glad my effort doesn't look too shabby next to Frank's.
