cold front--
in the busker's guitar case
five copper coins

Reading that, I thought it was a John McDonald, it has JM written all over it, and then I saw 'twas you. Well caught, as JM says.

Thanks, John and PIR. I'm sure it's that I'm a fan of John's haiku and have picked up on his perspective. :-)

Nora,
I like your Haiku. I relate to it because I'm a busker (though I don't play guitar).
I would like to ask for your permission to post your Haiku poem on my blog where I tell what happens when I play in the NYC subway: www.SawLady.com/blog
I will put a copyright to you, of course, and I could put a link to you (if you agree, please let me know what name credit and what link).
Thank you and all the best,
Natalia

Natalia,

Cool site and bless you for making an ordinary day more beautiful in the city. When I was a child, an older gentleman in our congregation ocassionally played a hymn on the saw during a worship service. I like the haunting sound.

You are welcome to use this poem. Attribute it to Nora Wood http://haikuaday.blogspot.com
