Post # 765

When last time in Helsinki I took the metro from Siltasaari downd to Ruoholahti. When rised up from The Ruoholahti Station of the Metro, I found a group of parked bicycles, bright colored. & a sunny day.
menopause --
the bicycles
appealing to ride

I checked with my wife the word "menopause" as a kigo, - An autumn, September, perhaps October, she said.
- And the males got also those, she said.

I looked my bicycle; waiting for me in slight drizzle.


Original Ezra Pound's 1913 poem "In a Station of the Metro":

The apparition of these faces in the crowd;
Petals on a wet, black bough.

I don't know if men are authorized to write menopause haiku.

Brilliant idea, Tikkis. And a fine picture.

@ Bill: Of course we are not authorized, but some of us are affected. Indirectly ;-)

Best wishes
