the yellow school bus still comes out this far
with only a handful of kids most are grown and
gone to the cities where jobs might be some hit
the high seas with dixie cups on their heads some
packed a weapon in the dusty towns in a war far
from that bus and from the yellow ribbons they'll
never see

walking his property the call to supper

In my opinion, one of the best guides for beginning haiku poets
is by Lee Gurga (Haiku: A Poet's Guide). I mention that because he describes nuances between
haiku, senryu and poems not quite fitting either type, such as
the one he used of mine: "removing her sweater/the spark/no longer there"
(p.57). Perhaps my recent post of "blossoming sky" also is not exactly haiku. Check it out.
Over the summer, in preparation for revising haiku notebook as an ebook, I'll be rereading other haiku books such as Gurga's and may post some missives here.
