man in the moon smiles

beckons to insomniacs

come, be mesmerized

blanc fluff dusts tips of

evergreen branches; softens

brittle spikes of frozen grass

a wreath wraps around us

“I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.”

love’s fire fiercely burns

devotion ignites desire

vows consummated

Kauai dreams

 


My husband and I will be married 35 years in 2018 so we are planning a trip to Hawaii to celebrate.  (Sharing “love haiku” with Carpe Diem Haiku Kai)

love buds afresh

The rose is a type of flowering shrub. The name “rose” comes from French. It comes from the Latin word Rosa. Roses have been symbols of love, beauty, war, and politics. Ornamental roses have been cultivated for millennia, bred for their flowers and fragrance. Roses are used for cut flowers, perfume, food & drink, medicine and in art.  There are many varieties today such as hybrid teas (most popular), floribundas, climbing roses, shrubs, standards, weeping standards, and miniature rose bushes.  For hundreds of years, the rose has been cherished for its beauty, form, and fragrance inspiring gardeners everywhere.

Carpe Diem Haiku Kai challenge to distill longer poem into haiku…

 

slow down, October,

single leaf and crow wait for

ripe amethyst grapes

 

October poem by Robert Frost (1874-1963):

O hushed October morning mild,
Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;
To-morrow’s wind, if it be wild,
Should waste them all.
The crows above the forest call.
To-morrow they may form and go.
O hushed October morning mild,
Begin the hours of this day slow,
Make the day seem to us less brief.
Hearts not averse to being beguiled,
Beguile us in the way you know;
Release one leaf at break of day;
At noon release another leaf;
One from our trees, one far away;
Retard the sun with gentle mist;
Enchant the land with amethyst.
Slow, slow!
For the grapes’ sake, if they were all,
Whose leaves already are burnt with frost,
Whose clustered fruit must else be lost—
For the grapes’ sake along the wall.

This is what I call “experimental haiku” … it tells the story with a minimum of words and that’s what I challenge you with.  (see Carpe Diem Haiku Kai family)
