Juneteenth

Juneteenth . . .

I free myself

“This is no country for old fish.”

It’s a parody of William Butler Yeats’s “Sailing to Byzantium”.

It’s a homage to a mixed-media painting by Lorette C. Luzajic.

It’s “Swimming to Byzantium“, published in MacQueen’s Quinterly, 6/12/21.

Bill Waters ~~ Haiku: it’s more than only haiku. ;- )

A little spring nonsense

Little by little, “small” has become “the next big thing”. :- D

To bring popular old poems into line with this passion for the petite, I recast Lewis Carroll’s 28-line nonsense poem “Jabberwocky” into a quatrain.

“Jabberwocky, Summarized”: you can now read in ten seconds what otherwise would have taken you an entire minute. (You’re welcome. LOL!- )

Haiku about sounds or silences

and then the sound

of an ice cream truck—

I pat my pockets

low battery —

trying to silence

the wrong smoke alarm


Published in Brass Bell: A Haiku Journal (https://brassbellhaiku.blogspot.com/2021/06/sound-no-sound.html), 6/1/21.
