A “fusion” haiku for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai‘s Crossroads Challenge…

 

a strange flower
for birds and butterflies
the autumn sky

the pheasant cries
as if it just noticed
the mountain

autumn on mountain

butterflies and flowers gone

pheasant’s golden cry

hope wears white

CDHK weekend fusion challenge: fuse two haiku, then create troiku…

 

temple bells die out
the fragrant blossoms remain
a perfect evening

will we meet again
here at your flowering grave –
two white butterflies

church bells’ somber ring
fragrance of casket flowers
butterflies wing hope

church bell’s somber ring
ask for whom is it tolling?
time waits for no one

fragrance of casket flowers
roses, daisies, carnations
florals dress-up death

butterflies wing hope
loved by two mothers, i know
we will meet again

                                                 butterfly trio

white petals flirt

                                  passing wings

                                                        dainty cabbage pests

 


My haiku flits like little butterfly to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai‘s garden of cabbages…

recital reminisce

 

when my son fingers those keys,

notes of Beethoven or Debussy

float like delicate butterflies to

bring happy summer to my ears

 

like sweet notes of summer, our

time flutters by on soft wings as

his beard appears… soon Nevue’s

music on my piano may fall silent
