Circus # 7- a haiku series

lit ferris wheel at night
Photo by Jaime Flores on

Neon lights flicker, 

The clown has entered the room. 

Deranged laughter. 

The elephants’ eyes, 

A deep moist amber, cry out  

Sad and desperate. 

Little children speak, 

In deep somber tones, watching

your every movement.   

A finger points there 

The silent ventriloquist

Smiling widely

Perched on a tent 

Lonely is the raven’s call 

Disjointed limbs move. 

Crawling rapidly

Toward the mime’s maze, stopping short

Withering in place. 

The Ferris wheel goes, 

faster and faster until, 

the world disappears.
