Blue(s) Haiku – February 7, 2015

rhapsody in blue
a city in a harbour
weeping clarinet
bustling fussing traffic
in New York living the blues

blue night tones
dancing prancing swaying
harbour lights

Today’s “Time Clock Challenge” at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is dedicated to Blue with a fantastic digitally produced impressionistic photo of New York.  My mind went automatically to George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue”, which happens to be one of those tunes that accompanied my childhood and I could  hear that opening clarinet lament as soon as I saw the photograph!
