Crinoline Wings

Crinoline wings
Take hostage my lamplight
Lazy August night.

This Poems Story

I am a haiku poet, basett hound wrangler, road warrior, writer, traveler, painter, sister, daughter and devoted wife. The poetry I write comes to me in flashes. Flashes of inspiration happen quickly and sometimes leave as such. "Crinoline Wings" is succinct, as is the very heart of haiku. They can hold a world in seventeen syllables. Haiku is said to be "the half-said thing." This particular piece was inspired on a cross-country road trip. A dragonfly, possessing delicately opalescent wings, came to share my lantern's light on a hot, dusky Northern California evening.
