"Drawbridge" (September Haiku, Day One)



I'm going to try to participate in this challenge from Haiku Heights and write a haiku (or something resembling one) a day.  The first word is "drawbridge."


It’s summer still.  Fall

Will lower the bridge over

Her castle’s moat.  Wait.




Live for the Love of it,

    1. Thank you very much. I look forward to this. I'm thinking of writing a string of connected haiku (I did that before), more like a long poem.

  8. Waiting for that drawbridge to move is sometimes an agonising process!

  9. Pretty images. I love the last word, standing alone. Wait. That's just perfect.

    1. Thank you. I'm probably breaking haiku rules by using punctuation, this "Wait," etc. I do adhere to the 5-7-5 syllable rule, though :-)
