an old woman sweeps
the walk of cherry blossoms
children’s laughter

    crone uninspired
    each year of falling blossoms
    preferred barren trees

    cherry blossom
    lands on cheek
    of sleeping child

    Yes, Thomas Edison invented haiku.

    Seriously, though, I hear what you're saying.

  8. Peter Newton Says:

    cherry blossoms . . .
    never find there way in

    my poems

    2nd draft: this is more what I want to say:

    cherry blossoms . . .
    just never seem to land
    in my poems

    Who said anything about "hip"? Why are you worried about being hip? Why do you equate hipness with "real prose"? Stop and eat the cherry blossoms. *munch*

  11. E.T. Says:

    i spoke of hipness
    and i don't worry about it
    i equate nothing with real prose
    independent invention

    Everyone I repeat…

    from her dark hip the moon's curve

    I like Ms. Poirier's poem very much!

    American haiku scene
    buried in cherry blossoms
