Kerouac


This new interest in writing haiku is opening a whole new world of authors to my feeble old mind.  It is being fun, challenging and at times a little overwhelming.  Nonetheless when I sit to work on blogs, it is the haiku I check first.  No, I am not converting to Buddhism, but I am fascinated by the poetry format.  Today's featured 'sparkling star' is Jack Kerouac. Please, click here to read the prompt that tells more of Mr. Kerouac's life and works.  The following are a couple of samples of his work as a haiku poet.

The summer chair
rocking by itself
In the blizzard

Those birds sitting
out there on the fence -
They're all going to die
