Orion Rising

Orion rising
over adjacent rooftops.
Twenty six degrees

and falling. Festive
front porch twinkling; enchanted
is my homecoming.

  8. dude, all your readers should know that i was welcomed
    the eve of this haiku
    on your twinkling front porch
    which by the way also sports an enormous lit santa claus
    under orion and the slivery moon
    by you in your red bathrobe.
    jealous, people??? ha ha!

  9. So you know, I keep reading this as “Onion Rising.”
    Maybe it’s time for new glasses.

    Although “Onion Rising” is a pretty funny title.
