NaHaiWriMo 2021: post script

Each year’s NaHaiWriMo writing prompts have a theme / gimmick. This year the writing prompts were song titles from four major music groups spanning the 1960s to the ’80s: Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, U2, and The Beatles. An interesting challenge!

Using social media likes as an informal poll, my top two poems from National Haiku Writing Month are . . .

    The poems were very thought provocative.
    The last time that I was on a train was probably when I was in Japan in 1953.
