Yellow Brick

road of yellow brick
leading to vivid red house
forgotten bicycle


written for dVerse, where we are writing poems inspired by the photography of Totomai Martinez.  In case you are counting syllables…yes, I know my haiku is too long.  The picture was taken in Malmö, Sweden.  I have never been there, but perhaps…someday…

  1. Interesting haiku, as you draw attention to both the red house AND the bicycle… The bicycle is hardly seen there in the shadows, but it is integral to your poem & makes the eye travel there as well.

  2. I love the idea of cycling to work and once could do it. I love to see all those bikes in Sweden of course, but also Denmark, Germany, The Netherlands and Belgium – a lot of them with red bricks houses.
