Carpe Diem Haiku No. 880 secrets unveiled of the Deep North: coolness, cloud peaks, not permitted to tell

Inside the hangout
Street people telling secrets
Before they must leave

After weeks and weeks
New tissue box on the desk
Permission to cry

The night is easy
With the sleeping street people
Covers each corner


  1. How often we don't give the homeless a second look ....

  2. The homeless are sadly a part of our landscape. I like the way your haiku is here and now!

  3. It always makes me sad to see people sleeping on the street.

  4. Beautifully penned!! giving respect to street people...young and old. This time of year, I see so many sleeping off the night in the warmth of our Métro; I`m thankful they are open from 5am to 1am. Even more thankful we have not hit our usual cold weather yet. Again, I enjoyed reading your haiku.
