autumn evening
the tap of a white cane
rounds the corner

Kirsty Karkow


aki no kure shiroki tue no ne kado magaru


A fine haiku for second place with multiple senses involved. Firstly we feel the chill of an autumn evening. Then kirsty allows us to 'not see' just as the blind man doesn't see. We only 'hear' the tap of a white cane. Everything in this haiku (except that cane) is in darkness, the evening, the blind man, and the reader. Very nice write---an'ya, editor
