joy of morning

curious fellow

wonders at human whistling

do you have birdseed?

found on auction

 

delightful treasure —

old painted porcelain vase

of moonlit plum tree

 

squirrel-ly

 

rodent mechanics

stash acorns inside engine

’til fall drives away

 

 

miniature intricacies

specimen in jar

face to face with monster fears

cicada sheds skin

bee helpful, bee kind

bee industrious worker

pollinate goodness

hunter moon

 

october hunter

moon is hunting, haunting my

feigned sleep — bright night light!

hashi-i

Linking to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai with this tanka…


 

sip book and iced tea

late summer sumac turns red

cooling off…on porch

 

sinking into old stuffed couch

before school begins again

 

opening to lovelight

 

floating on black pond

mysterious lotus heart

~ deeper reflections ~

tickled pink

My haiku/senryu/troiku written for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai challenge…


 

hot pink peonies
sweet gift from my grand daughters
picked fresh this morning

hot pink peonies
bloom on daughter-in-love’s bush
color of summer

gift from grand daughters
to surprise beloved grandma
sweet smiles are enough

picked fresh this morning
fragrant blush on lips, cheeks
happiness in bloom

photo-shopping haiku

Link to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai where host, Chevrefeuille, invites us to “improve” on a classic haiku; re-write and make it look better (like a photo-shopped image).


 

 

autumn has come
visiting my ear on
a pillow of wind

autumn rustles in
whispering wind tickles ears
fluffs leafy pillow

A fresh installment for Carpe Diem’s retreat: joy of light

lenten days lengthen

light increases by minutes

joy of spring coming

open tightly closed windows

inviting fresh clean breeze in!
