all humans be born

naked, wet ‘n slippery;

(most die clothed & dry)

bare babies uber precious

do ya ever wonder why?

 


Linking to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai prompt on “nakedness”

 

autumn’s perfume

 

warm apple cider

we sip fall, wrapped in blanket

spice perfumes chill air

Elsie at Ramblings challenges us to write senryu with: earthquake & ruins


 

 

earth quakes beneath feet

apartment wall splits open

huddle in ruins

 

creating beauty

 

creating beauty

spiritual transformation

God is the potter

 

steady pressure on life’s wheel

reforms wet clay in love’s hands

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NIV)

This senryu written in “free” form and linked to CDHK  “no rules” prompt…ironic, because kids need some rules to flourish.

 

years dedicated to

the nurture of children

full life enriched

lessons from nature

delirium in dirt

Not sure if this would be considered haiku (nature)or senryu (human nature).

 

moonlight stirs crazy

work late against chance of rain

farmer digs darkness
