festival lights

festival lights
on the wet sidewalk
-- john McDonald

A clever reflection haiku; here we are offered another dimension, the view of a scene within a scene, the reflective view of the writer and also a reflection of its reality; a surreal presentation.
Line Two, is powerful in its cryptic description and animation; at this pivotal juncture, John's haiku comes alive and pulls us into his experience, with uncanny curious interest. What festival is this, where is it, did it rain, how is the sidewalk wet?
It is the dearth of information which heightens our interest, once he has drawn us in.
This sidewalk canvas framed in haiku, is now hung in gallery cyberspace for our delightful viewing.

Well done John
