April Haiku 3
By Don Iannone

wistful marbled clouds
Kurt Vonnegut will be missed
a legend is gone

early morning sun
too soon for shadows in life
a crow in my dream

sweet scent of lilac
intoxicated crow laughs
too good to be true

The second is my favorite. :)

Don Iannone said...

Thanks Polona, Andrew, and Kai. Kaiku is a new form for me so I'm just experimenting.

Hi Don
It's been a while since I've visited...I've missed all your wonderful poetry.
Like this post....wonderful!
Gosh, I think Ive read almost all of KV's books....he surely will be missed.
And, I'll miss you...
I'll be posting a poem in a few days...finally!
Then I'll be saying goodbye for a while...probably till the Fall.
I just don't have the time now to attend to my blog or visit blogs.
I hope you'll stop in for a visit when I post my poem....
Till I see you again...take care!
Enjoy life and keep on writing all the wonderful poems!

Thanks everyone for your encouraging comments. Haiku is new to me. To say the least, it is different, but I feel like I could get the hang of it.

Margie, so good hearing from you. I hope things are well with you. I will look for your special poem.

Aurora, thanks. Never wrote tried tanka. Maybe I should look at it. Thanks for the suggestion.

Kilgore, Polona, Floots, Nasra, Pat...thanks so much.

Kilgore has a nice ring to it. You must be the clothier here in Cleveland by the same name, OR you are KV's alter ego...
