KRAKÓW HAIKU

shoppers throng the clean
safe streets—sixty-three years now
since the last world war

every place on earth
sparing nowhere—must be scoured
to stock all these shops

the castle that once
held fast kings and their swordsmen
is tamely floodlit

but don't get me wrong
history is a nightmare
it's an improvement

I brought my camera with me, but lately I've been feeling when I travel that I don't want to be a slave to the picture-taking process. I don't know if its as good for my readers, but I find more enjoyment in writing poems about what I've seen. There will still be pictures, just later. Google it and you'll find millions better than I can take.
