Haiku in the Time of Corona Virus – series

In my present project “Haiku in the Time of Corona Virus” I write at least one Haiku a day.
I am attempting to bring some focus to our situation and our lives, much like the Samurai did when they wrote Haiku before going into battle.
My hope is that this might bring some inspiration to others.

empty city streets.

the low hum of wind and birds.

alone with the sun.

 

Look for other poems in Peter’s “Corona Virus” series on KOM over the next few months.
NOTE: Haiku is a form of Japanese verse written in 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5, 7 and 5 syllables.
