Yesterday, Read Write Poem suggested writing a “where do you come from” poem.
I wrote a pantuom about my roots in August, that’s here. So I went back to my original and condensed it into haiku.
parents: teacher, nurse
abandoned violin song
weekend party house
grandfather clock chimed
santa ana winds bit cheeks
family road trips
back seat foot fights with brother
cross country summer
autumn’s fire ring
grandmother, aunt, both mentors
roast served on Sunday
college girl leaves home
wraps herself in northwest rain
I am very interested in combining pantuom with haiku as the two forms are so contrasting. For more good poetry reading or prompts Visit Read Write Poem.
