Haiku Poetry

November 5, 2009

lovelyI love paintchips, the color names in particular. Who thinks these up? I want their job.  In my collecting i’ve discovered categories of names: emotional, edible, things, and then there’s miscellaneous (these are the best). Enjoy haiku from my latest collecting trip:

calm, fond memory,
forget me not, peace and happiness,
lazy sunday.

grandma’s sweater, fresh cut grass, little piggy, pool party,
hiking path, cupid’s dart,
fountain spout, baby chick.

homespun charm,
under the big top,
pennies from heaven.

icing on the cake, pumpkin mousse, marshmallow bunny, sweet taffy,
fruit shake, pink popsicle, vegetable patch, raisin torte,
melted ice cream.

– Benjamin Moore, Broadway @ Spring St, SoHo
