haiku retrospective xlv

october warmth --
the starched drying of the quilt
in the autumn sun.

10 October 1999

This is my first extant post to the shiki list. Still almost 5-7-5, and to my modern eye it seems Victorian, overwritten, particularly the word “starched.”

But real haiku are on their way.
