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!

light gives life to earth

sunrise will follow sunset

as day follows night

cool palette interrupted

 

winter’s white garden

icicles cling to blue spruce

empty red birdhouse

 

 

yes, deer

Chevré at Carpe Diem invites us to dig into archives. Haiku submitted to Lyrical Iowa a couple years ago; not published so posting now, along with photo taken last Sept. in Colorado Springs (added 2 lines to make it a tanka).


 

liquid eyes, white tail

grace notes on musical scale

doe does as does do

 

fans fawning at her beauty

evidence the buck stopped here

farmers’ complaint

CDHK challenge to write haiku about rainstorm without using the word…

 

full creeks run swiftly

cattle huddle in wet mud

autumn’s cold deluge
