NaPoWriMo 2013 pseudoku

black clouds of sorrow
hunkered down under trees
tom keeps watch in the rain


freezing rain
coats weeping branches
limbs that will bend or break

They are called pseudoku as we white folks have issues writing true Haiku! 

We tend to murder it like desperate crows seeking shiny jewels! The prize often escapes us.

We often miss the twist at the end. (Read more here!) 
Syllabification doesn't translate well into English.

Did you mean to link this up with another prompt? You linked up with Imaginary Garden with Real Toads "Artistic Impressions Abstract Art...

Love the photos, and poems, but I think you meant to link to another challenge. ?

Or just reference which photo you are using with this.. :)

Well, Margaret, the first dark photo was pretty depressing and put me into a sad place. I'm too old to have to play by the rules. All of you, as poets, inspired me to write. I guess I don't fit into your little group!

I think that was a great explanation of your thought processes triggered by the IGWRT prompt, and I also applaud your comments about pseudoku, for even though I am guilty of the English murder of the Japanese form, I do appreciate the 'real thing'.:)
