Haiku Heights, prompt "hour"


Also published for:





Hello to you all,

After our April Challenge we start with new weekly prompts. This week's prompt is hour not so easy to write a haiku about, but I should try ...

in the rush hour
standing in a full train
reading the newspaper

reading the newspaper
another day of 24 hours
caught in black ink



caught in black ink
stories on war and hunger
all around the world

all around the world
people reading the newspaper
in the rush hour

See you next week.

You are right, this was not an easy prompt to write about, but you've done a fine job. You captured the life of the rush hour very accurately.

Hi to you all. Thank you for your nice comments on this entry for Haiku Heights.

I have started today a new challenge. I have called it Tackle It Tuesday and you can write a haiku on a given prompt. Today Tackle It Tuesday is online and the first prompt is "RAINDROPS". Join the fun!

Rush hour - perfectly captured. Newspapers may be going away, but rush hour isn't.

The mad rush hour is the same all the world over be it on the road or the subway. The crowd is there and we still feel lonely - no one is talking!
