GIRL ON A TRAIN... THE BURIED GIANT... THE GREAT GATSBY ... AND ROBERT FROST?

From Girl on a Train to Robert Frost...I recently wrote a few haiku reviews... a great exercise in writing. Some are reactions to what I read, others are refractions of characters (i.e. the pool cleaner in Gatsby is in my imagination, not the novel's pages). Here goes... 

For The Girl on a Train…
 
WOMAN ON A METRO
 
On a metro car:
See or hear nothing, feel less.
Days of driving rain.
 
 
For The Buried Giant…
 
FOREVER TODAY
 
No past, no future—
misted memories, but all
connect, remember?
 
 
For The Great Gatsby…
 
THE POOL CLEANER
 
I cleaned the swim pool—
after cops fished Gatsby out—
more work, no more pay.
 
 
For The Collected Poems of Robert Frost…
 
A LOST WRITER
 
I don’t know these woods—
what crossroad to travel now—
lead me there, poet.
 
Have you ever tried a haiku review?
 
—Caroline Bock is the author of the critically acclaimed young adult novels: BEFORE MY EYES (St. Martin’s Press, 2014) and LIE (St. Martin’s Press, 2011).
