In Response

Standard

April 21 was Poem in Your Pocket Day, so the poems in today’s post are written in response to another poem. I chose three of my favorite haikus from the anthology Haiku in English Ed. by Jim Kacian, Philip Rowland, and Allan Burns.

By Gary Hotham

coffee
in a paper cup —
a long way from home

My response:

red eye flight
last at the gate
my coffee is cold

By Marcus Larsson

autumn colours
we let mother lie
about our childhood

My Response:

summer wind
we get into mischief
and point fingers

– – –

By George Dorsey

low tide
people seem
more honest

My Response:

new moon
I can’t find
the truth
