haiku - two perspectives on cars

The challenge this week on One Deep Breath is to write two haiku showing one topic from two perspectives. I chose cars as my subject and these are my haiku:


Gas guzzling monsters
Eating up the countryside
Destroyers of earth


Beautiful machines
Pleasure on the open road
Personal freedom

I tried to post a comment several times this afternoon, but Blogger was out to lunch. I love the opposing views you present in your beautiful haiku! Really well done.

Sandy said...

I can see both sides.
Who doesn't love a beautiful car?

Great perspective of both sides of the great SUV debate.

excellent! yes, it's going to be a tough battle giving up those things.

Wonderful! You've shown the "two perspectives" splendidly. Well done.

Madeleine said...

excellent...we really can't live without them, though, can we? As much as we love and need them.

i would have never thought to write about cars. it's something we use each day, they guzzle gas and puff out blackness into the air. I also see both sides of this - I love my car, but I don't love what goes into making a car on all levels.

Very good topic, very good haikus.

Thanks for all the comments folks and just to add, I have never driven a car, let alone owned one. I'm lucky to live in a city with good public transport.....

Great selection for the topic this week. They are a necessary evil. Great haiku!

Hehe that’s so true what you said. Although I do strongly believe cars are not the cause of global warming its what the governments test out and the nuclear energy, also factory pollution. Amazing poem!!!
