headlights flash on/off
signal to oncoming cars
cop? wreck? deer? who knows

No 5-7-5

On my way home from work two weeks ago, an oncoming car’s headlights flashed on and off. I knew an area with reduced speed was ahead, so I expected to see a patrolman waiting. I didn’t pass any cops or see anything unusual. I guess I’ll never know what or who that other driver was trying to signal. At least he inspired this haiku for day 18 of NaHaiWriMo.

  1. Those flashing headlights, meant to be helpful, so often slow me down for some time as I wait to approach something that never appears. Could it be that a fellow traveler just has a weird sense of humor?


What do you have to say about that?
