Carpe Diem Special – Richard Wright – July 4, 2016

The task for Carpe Diem Special is not only to read a poem by a haiku author, but to try “to write a new haiku (or tanka) in the same tone, sense and spirit as the given one”.  Today we revisit Richard Wright.

A broken signboard banging
In the April wind.
