Something there is that doesn’t love a wall…
 
from “Mending Wall” by Robert Frost
 


unloved wall—
even the old paint
is weeping

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.
