Yaroslavsky Terminal Moscow

02 Jan

sound of violin
random glance changes two lives
~ a search is over

To be honest, this was pretty hard task for me. Somehow, I was feeling like 17 syllables were not enough so I used the form of choka. Personally, I still like it more then the shorter version. 🙂

Yaroslavsky Terminal
greets trains from afar.
Whistle of locomotive,
sound of violin,
the five centuries long search…
Random glance changed everything.

For Carpe Diem #364, Yaroslavsky Terminal Moscow

    Brevity packs more of a punch….but if you feel penned in, why not try a paragraph of prose before the haiku? It’s haibun (and all the cool kids are doing it. Ha ha).

      If all cool kids are doing it, then I must try! 😀

    Love your choka… yes there are many ways to go with these prompts…

      I wasn’t sure about the rule and if it has to be answered only by haiku so I made one for any case, although I saw on your blog that you responded in a different way which I liked. Thanks for your feedback.

        I try to bring in a haiku… but I agree that american sentences are only Ginsberg’s version….

        I have never heard about american sentences before. I am going to explore it. A lot of things I learnt here. 🙂

    love both of your poems. The choka has the explanation, but the haiku packs a good punch. Well done!

    Your haiku expresses the essence, I think it is better than you think!
