These are one-line haiku, successful or not.

they are both heavily influenced by buddhism and eastern literature and
like you said... they were really close friends. this does go way back to
early modern american poetry. WC Williams, who was also influenced by
Eastern Lit. was Ginsberg mentor who introduced him to Snyder(or something
like that). Look it up.

I was wondering if anyone else finds a connection between Ginsberg poems
like this one and Gary Snyder poetry. I have noticed that many of the
scenes they paint are similar ones of people out on a trail in nature,
enjoying that, among other things. I know that Ginsberg and Snyder were
good friends and hiked in the mountains a great deal together so it seems
resonable that their poetry would somehow be connected. Any thoughts on

I didn't count it. Is it really 136 syllables. If it were me it wouldn't
be and people who had counted would say, hey, it's not the right number.
If it really is 136 syllables I wonder what that says about him, that he
actually counted them and gave his poem that title. I liked it. Again, I
like his vocabulary. I like warble and Pleaides right there together.
wow. good images. I could almost see it all as it must have actually
happened, which I suppose is the art of a great poet.

Strange poem once you get to read it, mainly because it's making emphasis
on multiple things, and also evokes different day times in a single
reaction. Nevertheless, great poem by Ginsberg.
