The Fire Hydrant

Ghetto dreams, ponder
Broke hydrant, cement
Only leaking tears

    thought I would check out one of your earlier haiku. I sure do enjoy the way you employ metaphor here. One of the things I like best in poetry.

    ... and you definitely did "haiku YOUR way". I know this isn't really what haiku is supposed to be about... observation/objectiveness and what not. But I admire the creativity of it! How you referenced a suburbian's (is that a word?) dreams with the chaos of a leaky hydrant... it's pretty smart really!

    Hi there, Amber!!! That's very sweet of you to say. This was posted several months ago. I don't recall how I did in the contest. But, it's ok. :) Your comment is quite appreciated. Thank you!

    I guess the sad situation warrants tears. Drake, you give me warm feelings with your sweet comments. Thank you for visiting.

    Judy, yes, very true. So well stated. You are extremely kind with your words. Thank you so much!

    For some reason this reminds me, being from New Orleans, that the tears flow throughout the city regardless of the area. Simply put, the Government chooses never to make "honest" repairs creating havoc amid the dreams of all people. Ponder is Useless. You are extremely talented.....
