a moment of darkness


What happened to the
lights? Murmuring, nervous laughs.
Sudden brightness stuns.

    @Wade: Excellent! A capture of the full story of a familiar human experience in haiku. Amazing what pictures just a few words can paint.

    @chris: I, too, had eyes pop open at 4am today. It didn’t take long to decide, might as well go to work.
