The Hat

The Hat

A Poem by Haruki

I perceive the sensation of a hat on my head


Floppy canvas brimmed


Obstructing my view of


A pine tree draped with snow.


Days later


Melted snow drops from the tree


And plops on the brim.


Whatever became of the hat?

humorous and tickles the heart, its as if what we wish for exists in daydreams and to make
dreams reality all one has to do is believe, but i love the way you literally painted with words.
fresh snow,pine trees, winter bliss...the talent to capture the essence

I really like this, to me it's not so much of an emotional write but more of a riddle, more entertaining and intended to provoke thought and questions. It feels like a poem intended to produce more questions than answers and I like that

Ah! I really like this. I found this comforting really as well as a loss.
This is a emotional write. Very well written.

A very philosophical question... yes the hat not only for protection and style but shielding us from hazards of life, i think in life to many of us wear a hat... I think it's time to let the sunshine upon my head and let my mind feel the heat of life. Very nicely done.
