Mondrian (1)

– Piet Mondrian, ‘Broadway Boogie Woogie, 1942-43,

In doors, out doors and windows that peek out at the street.
Neon lights beckon, come in, come in.

Life on Broadway never slows nor darkens.
It is exciting, busy. Wait by the stage
door, be patient, and you may see some
of the actors leave. Snag an autograph
for your playbill like I did
when I saw Nathan Lane.

bees buzz near lavender
mayflies race to get indoors
spring is alive

Haibun Monday: Meet Piet

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.

    I like how the neon lights beckon one to come in and the waiting at the stage door when they actors go out.

    I love that you have seen windows in the image, Sara, as well as doors, the welcoming feel of ‘Neon lights beckon, come in’, and the references to the theatre. The haiku evokes the busyness not only of spring but also the picture.


  3. I like the thought of going to the theater… it seems like something that we once used to do.
