November 12th 2015 | straggling pumpkins


····each other—the straggling pumpkins and
·············the moon


  • I saw a field with a few remaining pumpkins and it reminded me of a haiku by the Japanese poet Roseki:



········Without a companion,
abandoned in the fields
········winter moon


I couldn’t decide between “straggling pumpkins” and “all the pumpkins”. I chose straggling because I liked how it suggested November more than October, that is: after Halloween.
