Alan,

My mistake too. I thought the next person could use both words "Ascension Thursday." It's a bit of a stretch to start only with Thursday :)) (at least for me). Sorry!

I'll change my verse. Here,

roller coaster
the screeching voice
of an icy wind

Adelaide

wind blown hair
my favorite photo
of her and her horse

marty

horses exercise
round and round the paddock-
neither first nor last

Adelaide

last minute deals...
I buy a ticket
for Ascension Day

My apologies, Alan. I misunderstood the rules of this Haiku Train. I wrongly assumed that Thursday was a cue for a weekday reference not specifically Thursday itself  :-[


Vida - very thoughtful of you to change your final line to day:)

I will try again.

I have a question regarding haiku posted on this train.  Are they considered published?

Hi Adelaide,

They are not edited, or selected by an editor, but they are visible to unregistered viewers. Some magazine editors may not choose to accept them as they can be seen by people.

There are editors who don't have issues with haiku that can be seen by people before publication.
