December 2nd 2015 | December’s wind

December’s wind blowing through an abandoned shed:

·

dangling
····by its own thread—the dead spider’s shadow
·············moves

Titling ones haiku is sort of cheating, but if Basho and Buson can do it, I plead clemency. It was a cold wind across Vermont today. I was in a shed overlooking the Connecticut river. The shed was full of cobwebs and the corpse of a thin-legged wolf spider dangling from a rafter. The river cast up an icy light.
