A long braided cloud –
Stretched across the sky –
On a terrestrial head

Notes to this poem…
Just an interesting cloud formation I saw that reminded me of a long braid. With the Earth being round, the symbolic association to that braid being on a head was easy.
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.
