Cool Announcement: One Eye on the Road

A Poet's Vacation Message

My Dear Readers/Poets:

                                                  a sickle moon
                                                  at the attic window . . .
                                                  layer by layer
                                                  Vincent's ghost peels
                                                  the crust from my night

In the back of my mind echo his words, "Every day is a journey, and the journey itself home."

In a few hours, I'll embark on a journey into the land of Starry Night, and, hopefully, I'll be back in shape on May 26th.

The following is the 2-week poetic food supply:

Editor’s Choice Haiku / Tanka

And  my haiku sequence, which was written after my 2012 Spain trip:

Journey through the Land of Melting Clocks

anything new
under the Barcelona sun
Casa Milà

a line of tapas
where does her love begin
and my desire end?

the full moon
at La Sagrada Família
unfinished me

Occupy Madrid
to my mother tongue

Seville Cathedral
above a sea of heads
chirping swallow

Dante in Thought
is it possible to take
refuge in poetry

Dalí painting
on my water-stained wall
hometown memories

Modern Haiku, 44:1, Winter/Spring 2013
