undou (movement)

 

breeze rustles fern leaf

humbly bows low to water

green ripples of peace

 

 

silence

autumn has come
visiting my ear on
a pillow of wind

autumn rustles in
whispering wind tickles ears
fluffs leafy pillow

cherry petals float

gentle from tree to kiss earth

scent of pink snowflakes

winter moon shining

framed by silhouette of tree

caught in cold night’s web

 

Linking to Frank Tassone‘s prompt on classical “winter moon” kigo…

small enough to drown

 

harvest gathered in

crystal sky glitters invite

river of heaven

 young maple leaves

ecstasy of summer growth

in dappled sunlight

hearts like leaves

 

five-pointed starlight

night blooming (morning) glory

moon waxes…then wanes

cherry trees will bud

float like soft pink petal clouds

Writing prompt at Ramblings of a Writer using words “arrived” & “breeze”.

 

wet flakes fall steady

spring arrived without a breeze

robin hops in snow

 

 

cold that purifies

 

bare tree silhouettes

world iced in dazzling white

winter’s elegance

 

“Elegance is the correct posture if the writing is to be perfect. It’s the same with life: when all superfluous things have been discarded, we discover simplicity and concentration. The simpler and more sober the posture, the more beautiful it will be, even though, at first, it may seem uncomfortable.”         – Paulo Coelho

summer’s last litter

rabbit’s heart patters fast beat

sudden departure!

kawasemi (kingfisher)

“Kawasemi” is a traditional Japanese “kigo” (seasonal word) used in haiku.  Find more information on kingfishers at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai‘s prompt…
