Too Dark to Read – Haiku – August 26, 2015

Nightfall,
too dark to read the page
too cold.

© Jack Kerouac (1922-1969)

This haiku particularly fit in with my long weekend in Sluderno (Italy) .  Once the sun went down, we only had candle and campfire light.  We sat huddled in our heavy wool cloaks, talking and joking just relaxing after a long day under the public eye … every once in a while a fire-eater from the camp in front of ours practised some of his tricks … it was like an odd flash of lightning flaming off in the night.

cold nights
the stars seemed close enough
to read the future

I’m add this haiku here because whilst I was writing it my time ran out to link-up:

[Lake Tana]
heart of Ethiopia
rumble at sunset
