Carpe Diem Special – Jack Kerouac’s “glow worm”

This month’s featured haiku-poet is Jack Kerouac (1922-1969), our mission, to write in the same vein as the poet of the month.

Jack Kerouac (1922-1969)

you’ve seen me post about Jack Kerouac in the past and you might remember this quote that Kristjaan has put up on his post:

Kerouac once said:

[…] “I propose that the ‘Western Haiku’ simply say a lot in three short lines in any Western language. Above all, a Haiku must be very simple and free of all poetic trickery and make a little picture . . .” […]

The haiku chosen was “Glow Worm”
