a blonde girl, wearing
a pink skirt, on a blue bike,
willed the red light green

    Troy--
    The use of color words give your haiku poems brightness and the line willed the red light green"" is perfection, makes me feel the moment. Your words have taken lessons from what your photographer's eyes see.
    Many thanks,
    Erin"

    [...] The receipt of the following haiku was sufficiently serendipitous, satisfying and apt that I want to share it. a blonde girl, wearing a pink skirt, on a blue bike, willed the red light green [...]

    Inebriated by colours...
    On the old-fashioned street,
    the astounding youth

    in the breeze a branch of roses
    goes up and down

    Dear Troy

    I found this haiku of yours through tinywords.com
    I just love it because I love colours.
    Keep on creating more colour-haiku.

    on top of the world
    amazing colours
