grieve a breeze

“Time Travel: Ancient Japanese Poetry” with Chèvre at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai

 

Even a breeze may fail me

When I desire it.

Little I should grieve,

If only, sure of its coming,

I could await even a breeze.

waka by Princess Kagami (7th century)

 

extreme summer

wrung out from humidity

even breeze feels hot

haiku by lynn__

breezy little poem

 

gentle quiver shivers maple leaves

reveals flash of their silver underside

quiet breath whispers subtle tease

where downy baby owlets hide

 

stronger gust flexes tops of trees

may blow in raindrops late today

squirrel kits sleep fits and sneeze

when swing in spring’s breezeway

our atmosphere

is making some

commotion here

 

wind blows

chinook whips

zephyr flows

tempest grips

norther howls

westerly stalls

squall prowls

microburst falls

 

yes, it will please

to dry the laundry

on soft breeze

 

but gusty gale

 

frames a pout

when all umbrellas

turn inside out!
