The discussion generated by the two ‘starless sky’ haiku I posted on Monday has in turn generated a handful of new haiku… and funnily enough, many of them have featured fishing and stars. Thank you again to all who shared their wisdom.

starless sky
the fisherman extinguishes
his cigarette

starless sky
the glow of the fisherman’s

I thought I would post both versions of this poem that I have been playing with… any comments to help me decide which image is clearest would be greatly appreciated.
