The River: a double sequence

12:59 pm December 26, 2012

“Riverwise Madrone”
by Karel K. Hendee

On day 880, I realized that the haiku I wrote on day 876 could have made a good beginning for another of my haiku sequences. (A series of haiku, each of which begins with the last line of of the previous haiku, with the last line of the last haiku echoing the first line of the first.) So even though there was now a four day gap, I went ahead and resumed the sequence on day 880. Then, when I got to the end of that sequence, I felt like there was more I could do with those first/last lines, and so I did a second sequence!
