Seasons in Steel
by A. Robot
does not compute
programmed to rake leaves
build a "snowbot"
Poet's Notes: Haiku traditionally include seasonal references. This scifaiku sequence offers a robot's perspective on the changing seasons. As a lover of both haiku and robots, I enjoyed writing this poem.
Editor’s Note: I enjoy the ironic humor, haiku-like form, and science fiction speculation here. And I, too, am a lover of both haiku and robots. “Seasons in Steel” first appeared in the August 2013 issue of Songs of Eretz Poetry E-zine.
