January 31st

Antique cloth-bound books
by a thin bunch of daisies, 
pencils in a glass

This haiku is a perfect snapshot. I can see it so vividly. I like all the upright images in the poem; the books, the flowers, the pencils. It's like the setting of a scene. Who is going to write and why? What are they going to write? Who picked the daisies....? Freya
