Nature's Spectacle: One Single Impression




natures creation
with wind erosion and time
sandstone spectacles

ancient hoodoos stand
maintaining their survival
keeping their hats on

If the caps fall off these sandstone structures they will quickly erode. For more information about these unique formations found in the Drumheller region of Alberta, Canada you may read HERE.

These haiku lines were created in response to the word, 'spectacle', which is this week's prompt at One Single Impression. For more poetry on this theme please visit the hosting site.

The Horse Pull: One Single Impression


old friends meet and greet
crowds gather around the field
to watch the horse pull

pulling together
feat of strength and endurance
seven thousand pounds

huge hooves biting dirt
both resolved to do their best
heavy loads are pulled

harnessed workhorses
patiently await their turn
hitched to the post fence
