Hay Bales (A Haiku)

On my way home from work, I drive by an empty field with hay bales scattered about.


Hay bales like tombstones
marking where the cows should be
on the grassless field.

  1. Far as not getting into a haiku habit goes, your resistance was nothing short of admirable. Now that we’ve crossed that particular bridge let’s say that this is as haikus should be – evocative. The image invoked is actually the polar opposite of that photo right there, with all the delicious greyscale gothiness a haiku can muster. Delectable. Positively delectable.
