hammock time
a neighbor’s lawnmower
cuts it short

    I should have caught the similarity sooner. Below is Dave Read's poem published in The Heron's Nest, December 2020:

    afternoon nap…
    a lawnmower
    cuts it short

    — DAVE READ

    Clearly Cremin's poem is a coincidental case of de'ja' KU which happens sometimes.

    Wow–uncanny how similar–I had to go back and check my records to make sure I didn't inadvertently lift Dave's haiku. I am relieved to see my haiku in my journal from October 2020.

    I know it doesn’t say this, but I keep seeing the strings of the hammock being cut! 😆

    Amusing ku.
