Haiku – Death Poem

Journeys to the Spirit


28 Days of Unreason, day 2 prompt:

“That morning the sun forgot to rise….” – Jim Harrison


he turned off the trail
no birds accompanied him
Basho breathed no more

Jill at Jillys2016 is revisiting a 28-day prompt-fest she calls “Days of Unreason.”  The name comes from a book of poetry called, “Songs of Unreason,” by Jim Harrison.  If you have never read any of his work, you’re missing out!  An author and a poet, Harrison lived… or at least wrote… on a totally different plane.  Possibly a different planet.  “I can’t walk in the shoes cobbled for me.  They weren’t devised by poets, but by shoemakers.”
