Bin Day

I have a number of poems on the go at the moment. They are quite long and very challenging emotionally so I can only work on them in short bursts. In between, I have been playing with Haiku.

its bin day again
watch the weeks waste away while
life is recycled

I am trying to convey the cycles of life - the bins get emptied each week according to a particular schedule - marking the passing of both time and the things we have no need for right now.

I have really enjoyed the discipline of this. I don't normally work to any particular format in my poetry and tend to mix up phrasing and pattern. I will return to it again.
