No Vacancies

in vacant windows
no chintzy drapes or roses
just my reflection
staring back from the darkness
or a ghostly resident

My response to Carpe Diem #1554 Haunted Houses (modern kigo)

Today’s modern kigo, ‘haunted houses’,  has been taken from Jane Reichhold’s Dictionary of Haiku, from the section autumn and the sub-section autumn occasions. Our challenge is to create a haibun, haiku or other Japanese poetry form inspired by the following haiku by Jane Reichhold:

deserted house
wild roses still have a view
of the remote coast

vacant stares
from the vacant house
no one looks

Jane Reichhold
