Haiku 226-227

Blank dark rectangles
repeated across the wall
reflect the lamp’s light

Shadows in hiding
hesitate behind the house
crouching in the rain

  1. Yes, kind of furtive and threatening in this case, not benign. The atmosphere of the rain and being behind the house is kind of scary. I liked the idea, wish I was good at plots, because this seems kind of like a little story…

  2. I guess I’m still thinking beginning middle end. I guess the thing is, there has to be a thread. I like uncertain endings but I need to know it is an ending. Fiction writing. I think about it. Maybe some day…

  3. I love shadows and the way they move and evolve and flicker as the light and other elements shift and change. I often find my eye is drawn to shadows, especially if they form a pattern as in your first poem.

  4. I’ve always been fascinated with them too. I remember when I belonged to the camera club that’s when I really started noticing them, in photos I took.
