A Crimson Sunset


A crimson sunset
 Chilly winds and children’s’ play
Death in the morning.

    I love a good haiku. I like that they’re suposed to be thought-provoking.

    I always find it hard, though, to ‘change subject’ after 2 lines but keep it relevant. You managed quite nicely here. By the looks of things your subject change is after line 1? i.e. seasonal setting of scene then change subject – Am I right?

    I’m a teacher too. Hard but worth it, right!

      Hi! First of all, thanks for visiting. Yes, it is extremely hard to change the subject after 2 lines and remain relevant and not just write some nonsense. You are correct, I begin to change the subject as soon as I’m done with line 1 here.

      Definitely worth it!
