Spontaneous Western haiku Tuesday (5-7-5 free zone)

Kerouac wrote Burroughs wrote
Ginsberg wrote the Generation wrote
The Shrouded Traveler wrote their souls wrote

Heat of my heart
Healing discomforts
Time slows and slows

Maine's state bird
Which kind? argue the people
The chickadees don't care

"It will be here when
You come back in"
She smiled knowingly

Everything that comes goes
Everything with a beginning has an ending
But nothing that's good ever dies

She asked "What does any of
this have to do with Kerouac?"
And I cried Beat tears

Nice Rick... I like this. P.S. can you send me your snail mail. every once in awhile I'll come across something concerning the Dharma bums or biggie Sandberg woods or something then I'll think Rick would dig this.
