Sleeping giant wakes.

Day turns night, life becomes death.

Pompeii never more.

Thank you for reading my first High-Ku. It was enjoyable.

I have enjoyed writing for most of my life, never professionally.

I wish to now share my stories with others, lets see where it goes.

Born and raised on the Canadian Prairies, I currently reside on the West Coast. I call both places home.

    as Abigail has discovered, a haiku 's purpose is to capture/convey an image. yours does so and extends into a well-known story. this is a very good poem - especially for your first!

  • The picture just added to your poem. I find that interesting- in this challenge, the images we choose seem more important because we can see them while looking at all the words of the poems!
