Gears, cogs, wood and bronze –
steam engines power the past,
ticking hearts of Man.
(I didn’t know if this was against the rules, but I wanted to try again.)
This post was prompted by this Trifextra, week 83:

Cool observation 🙂
Thank you, Bjorn. 🙂
This reminded me so much of Atlas Shrugged for some reason ( which I Love but dont necessarily agree with)
very nicely done brother!
You know, I felt the same way about Atlas Shrugged, it feels kind of naive on Rand’s part to portray the average person the way she does, and yet it was a great story that made some interesting points.
we think a like kiddo and youre welcome:)
Ooh, I like this. The combination of the haiku and the image gives it a steampunk feel 🙂
Glad you enjoyed, thanks for reading and commenting. 🙂
I, too, like the image and how your words mesh perfectly with it. Very good job, my friend. One of my favourite haikus so far.
Thank you. 🙂
Wow. You just wrote a Haiku that summarizes my son’s brain.
I’d have to say that’s much more connection than I ever expected to make with a haiku; thanks for that!
I felt like this was a glimpse into an inventor’s brain. Nice!
Thank you. 🙂
