impatient for dusky skies
to glow amethyst

Your haiku tells me they are on the West coast, and I can see the sky turning to color. Very nice.

Peace.

the other night driving home due east around sunset.. glorious is all i can say.. i kept on looking out my windows, the rear view mirrors to catch the sight... talk about heavenly.. i love the photo of expectant red chairs... and yr ku the words explore a whole other side i would not have experienced the inanimate animated....

It is a wonderful idea, the concept of empty, expectant chairs allowing one to imagine their occupants and the life each leads, thinking of sunset and its resplendent colors. It is lovely. Nice contrasts too.

Ooooh! I would like to be with you to capture the changing light, and it's effects, as 'ms pie' so observantly put it 'the expectant chairs'. The privilege of noticing is all ours! affecting the emotions!

Thanks for words and image.

"Is anybody sitting here?"
(Polite amd hilarious middle-class British English phrase for saying:
"Is this seat taken?")
Red going to amethyst...now there's hope of fireworks.

I want to hang out on your red chairs, Miss Meri ! My world is getting greyer by the minute. Thank God for the bright color in my Art and Heart !
Have a joyous weekend !

i am imagining that there are enough red chairs for each and every one who haiku-s.
that together in the gathering light of promise...
we will all surely
GLOW.

Awaiting the twilight light,between daylight and darkness, to be smudged by a dark velvet night!! Lucky chairs get to see it all :)

An empty chair facing towards the sun or ocean or mountains is so inviting. what a lovely and creative haiku.
