Haiku H226

Lots of dream catchers –
Are sold in Arizona –
But few dreams to catch

Notes to this poem…

A dream catcher is a handmade willow hoop, on which is woven a net or web from Native American cultures. They were sold everywhere I went in Arizona. However, given the barren, albeit gorgeous barren, landscape from the Grand Canyon to big night sky, I thought there were very few dreams to catch. If nothing else, almost everything beautiful to me was way too immense to catch in something like that! Everything that might fit were either far and few in between, or not that “dreamy”.

The H-series poems comprise of haiku composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Haiku collection.
