rubbernecking
the sunset geese -- 
our tailgater honks

    I love the sense of humour in this one! It certainly repays savouring!

    Under the circumstances, I confess I might honk, too. But, hey, if it inspires a good ku like this one, where's the harm?

    WOW.

    I aspire to be able to write haiku like that.

    Thanks, everybody. Don't get me started on tailgaters. And, Aurora, you've got to get out and meet a few more lawyers. Of course, my being an ex-lawyer probably wins me a few points with you.

    . . . a lovely way of showing a human/nature connection.

    i had this same experience driving home a few days ago and wanted to write a haiku about it. you beat me to the punch, but you did so in a much more elegant manner.

    cross moonless field
    this last night of the year
    silent shadows in repose
