gold circle floats out of reach
starry summer nights
haiku by M. Nakazato LaFreniere
Victoria C. Slotto challenges us to use symbolism in our poem. I chose the carousel/merry-go-round. Rather than telling you what the poem means, I figure I’d let you guess what the carousel means. Partly too because I think the same thing can symbolize different things to different people at different times and I am okay with the shifting meanings of poetry.

1996 Picture: A gorgeous antique carousel graces the grounds of Tilden Park with hand-carved fantastic creatures. Built in 1911, bought in 1978, the merry-go-round is one of 200 hand-carved wooden carousels in the United States.
