    Can political elections or any kind of these things get any stranger, I wonder.

    another wave
    of election ads

    —Dan Curtis

    Spindrift, the spray blown from cresting waves during a gale. And also my parallel reading method reads it as: spendthrift, a person who spends money in an extravagant, irresponsible way.

    Elections use up millions upon millions of dollars or pounds etc… that could be used instead for social improvements,

    Thankfully the UK doesn't seem to have those weird election ads on television etc… other than creepy leaflets and pamphlets using up trees.

    Alan, thank you for taking the time to read my haiku and comment on it. I particularly like your parallel reading of "spendthrift".

    I also like your monoku – 'snowbound in light" is very evocative.


  3. Alan Summers Says:

    Thanks Dan!

    I find parallel reading both intriguing and also useful to show there's more than one way to commit to 'modern haiku'.

    Nicely done, Dan.

    And of course line one makes me think of spin doctors.


  5. Dan Curtis Says:

    Thank you, Marion! I'm pleased this works for you.

    Political tides never seem to ebb, just another spindrift of election ads crashing in.
