Snow Covered Tires - Puns in Haikus. Photopoetry by Keith R Wahl

February 24, 2024  •  Leave a Comment

Every now and then, I find something that I don't like even though I am able to find a way to make it visually appealing. In this case, it is cast off tires in the midst of beautiful Ryan Park in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. Rather than be indignant, I tend to use humor and make puns. In this case, I decided to mix my puns with haiku. 

Snow Covered Tires - Puns in Haikus

Snow-covered tires rest,
Nature's park becomes their bed,
Tread softly, they said.

Treads now hidden, a new disguise,
Snowflakes cling, a winter surprise,
A tire's life, a different guise.

Winter wonderland
But the tires are not thrilled
They feel deflated

Snow tires in the park
They are no longer in use
A wheel waste of space

Stacked like frosted rings,
Spring dreams trapped in rubber tombs,
Slush whispers, "Let's roll!"

Doughnut holes in white,
Sprinkles melt, a sugary hush,
Nature's sweet tooth sleeps.
