DEATH BY GPS HAIKU, etc.


Desert superbloom
siren call of empty roads
led tourists astray.

New technology
old backroads, no cell service
= death by GPS.

Death Valley lives up
to its name, tourist follow
back roads to their death.

Death by GPS
the desert lives up to its name
wrong road led them astray.

Three lines of 5-3-5 syllables, or 5-3-5 words.
(or do a haiku)

I seem to be having trouble with this prompt.
5-3-5 syllables

Heady floral scent
blossoming
in the lemon tree.

Hummingbird visits
each flower
sacramental dip.


or 5-3-5 words (easier to do, but I'm locked into haiku}.


Hummingbird visits every flower twice
seeking sweet nectar
Meyer lemons in the bud.

Moths chewed on old cashmere
sweaters leaving trails
of darkness and light behind.
