Peering at Rooftops

I usually post the Haiku Horizons haiku prompt on Sunday, but this weekend was special and I wanted to spend some time with my husband and my parents. My parents live about eight hours away, so I try to take advantage of the short time I have with them.

Mom and I went shopping, and we visited my favorite nail salon for manicures. My dad and husband had a fishing guide take them out on the Mississippi River to catch Walleye— and oh boy did they catch lots of fish!

It was a wonderful weekend that went by way to fast!


Here is the haiku prompt for the week, “needle.” I wanted to experiment today and write a haiku about a type of “needle” without using the word needle. Is it successful? You tell me.

SpaceNeedle Haiku

Space Needle


Today’s Haiku:

gentle breeze
a cultural icon sways—
peering at rooftops


Has anyone been to the Space Needle in Seattle, Washington?

Have a terrific Monday!


PS – I think I found another Girl on the Go adventure…The Space Needle!

  1. Never been at Seattle’s space needle but have passed by the structure many times. Love you Haiku and I’m happy for you that you got quality time with your mom and dad. Be well

  2. I got it… The pointed tower piercing the sky! Like a needle! 🙂
    By the way, this is the monument which was turned into a UFO in “Men in Black”, right?
