Wind-Struck

Rotation

Trusted metal piece
Subjected to wear and tear
Change the timing chain

And none the wiser
Car engines don’t bother me
As long as it runs


Haikus Inspired by Willow's Magpie #76

  3. Seen as one double haiku or as two, equally effective - and affective. Fine post.

  7. ..omit the 'A' in the first line to remove the excess count of syllables in your Haiku.. anyhow.. with or without it doesn't actually reduce the power you raised in your Haikus.. i like 'em both but my vote goes to the first one... not because of the 'A' but rather the allegorical meaning you hid inside those very lines.. exquisite!(:

    Brightest blessings!

  9. 'change the timing chain' .. applies to so much more than auto engines. I enjoyed this!!

  12. I agree about car engines! As long as it runs when I turn the key, that is sufficient!

  13. They don't bother me, either, if they run.
