haiku, tanka, sijo

haiku

runaway teenager
a family searching the woods
blue flashlights of fear

 tanka

runaway teenager
a family searching the woods
blue flashlights of fear
who can tell you apart
your face gone to torn rags

Sijo

little boy runs the river
sunlight gleaming off high red cliffs
playing at death in beautiful games
neon glory, all alone
black asphalt line, the long hard road
run away where they can't follow

  1. Interesting progression, the first two ominous in tone, yet in the third, I can feel the boy's joy in running away where no one can follow. Very intriguing series.
