The Wasteland - haiku
Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge is a new one for me. In school I was taught “traditional haiku,” where a season was just suggested using "season words," but not specifically mentioned by name. So, I am breaking those “rules” here, and yes, it bothers me a bit, even 45 years later. Wow… 45 years. Mrs. Buckette would be proud her lessons stuck!
Here's my take for #328, using the words "dust" and "weed."
No rain in four months
The Drought lasts all Summer long
Just Weed, Dust, and Death
