‘circus time’ 18 July 2013

 

circus time
a dove escapes
the magician’s hat

Posted on Kirsten Cliff’s blog, Swimming in Lines of Haiku, 18 July 2013, in response to her July challenge, “I Quote, You ‘Ku.” Today’s quote was:
“Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.”
~Rabindranath Tagore

(The challenge, in Kirsten’s own words:
“… is to write a haiku or tanka (or choose one of your previously published works) that has a connection with the themes/feelings/images of the above quote, without just restating what has appeared in the text, to create a haibun. Play around with it and see what you come up with. Enjoy!”)
