Haiku by Marmika

#Haiku Happenings #7: Miriam Sagan presents a haiku by Marmika!

Miriam's Well: Poetry, Land Art, and Beyond

snowing again
but on the road to Madrid
it rains

I like this haiku by Marmika because it is full of local New Mexico weather. Madrid (pronounced MAD-rid) is an old mining town that now has retail and a funky charm–no longer a ghost town. The altitude drops en route, so snow turns to rain. But the ephemeral quality of the haiku suggests it might turn back again. The location is grounded and specific, the weather is not.

Send me a few haiku to consider for publication and if I use one I’ll give it a bit of context. msagan1035@aol.com
