Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Challenge: Skylark 

When I opened the challenge today from Carpe Diem Haiku Kai I immediately knew where this one was going. And I knew it was probably, for me anyway, going to be in a very different direction than most folks. While I’m not a “car guy” really, I used to be in the car business and have always loved the looks of the classic cars from the 1950’s through the early 1970’s so the skylark I though if was the mechanical kind rather than the feathered type. 

I had to borrow an image for this challenge; I don’t catalogue vehicle pictures, except a few of my own. But a quick search brought me to the exact car I had in mind: a burnt orange coupe with racing stripes from 1970.

I also learned that yesterday I was miss-quoting the name of the style of haiku here (poem on photo) with name of the subject matter of that challenge; my thanks to the commenters that made me realize this without calling me out embarrassing me! This style is actually Haiga not Higan.
