Haiku At The Movies

Standard

With Spring Break well on it’s way, I did a little spring cleaning in my Draft Folder. I found a lot of junk (seriously, what was I thinking??), but I also I found a little gem. Here are a few haikus I wrote back in October for Wednesday Poetry Prompt #328: movies, (via Poetic Asides).

I.
summer moon
glinting on cars
drive-in movie

II.
shrieking monster
fills the screen
popcorn flies

III.
water falls
a scene
in slow motion

Now off to the closets to give them a good cleaning …
