Whirling with Robert Frost

The first line of each haiku or senryu is taken from “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost.

~~ 1 ~~
I could not travel
the bleak and nebulous roads—
blazing ways I sought.
~~ 2 ~~
Way leads on to way,
even when you’re short of breath
and the timing’s off.
~~ 3 ~~
Be one traveler,
not two or three, divided
in vision and touch.
~~ 4 ~~
in the undergrowth
a torch to cut through darkness
and welcome the light
~~ 5 ~~
in a yellow wood
a broken slab of tombstone
where three wraiths hover
~~ 6 ~~
I shall be telling
an opaque tale that will crush
the strongest of souls.
