Written for:  Carpe Diem #1557 – Departure . . .
“The Pan-American Highway passes through many diverse climates and ecological types, from dense jungles, to arid deserts, to barren tundra, some of which are passable only during the dry season, and in many regions driving is occasionally hazardous.

Well … are you ready? Come on let us go on a journey along the Pan American Highway and try to create haiku, tanka or other form of Japanese poetry. This will be an amazing trip …”

Here is my “departure” haiku:

rising sun
from a far away place
nightingale’s song

Here is my attempt:

risky adventure
a land of treacherous terrains
tickles my fancy



About purplepeninportland

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.
