steel blue

Written for:  Carpe Diem Weekend-Meditation #16 Only The First Line “steel blue night”
This weekend-meditation is about (as you have read in the title) “Only the First Line”. It’s one of the historical special features here at CDHK as I have created a lot. This feature is all about completing a haiku (or tanka) that starts with only a given first line.

I think the goal of this special feature is very clear and needs no further explanation. So let me give you a few “first lines” to work with this weekend:

“a walk through the city”
“hot summer day”
“the passing spring”
“steel blue night”

Here is my attempt:

steel blue night
standing on the fishing pier
stars appear electric

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
