fishing for stars

“Tan renga” chained together for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, where Delores wrote a beautiful haiku and I was reminded of poem by Eugene Fields.


 

clouds and waves
carry my dreams away
tugging my anchor

dreams at dusk

 

fireflies spark magic

blinking lawn lights mesmerize

summer’s faerie dreams

purple dreams

Kortney at Tweetspeak Poetry hosts Monday prompts, tanka this week.


 

I come weary,
In search of an inn—
Ah! these wisteria flowers!

–by Matsuo Basho, translated by William George Aston

 

purple moon blooms in doorway
scent welcomes dream traveler

Inspired by Carpe Diem Haiku Kai prompt: embroidery thread

now i lay me down

A “gentle scent of lavender” at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai today…

 

pillowed prayers’ peace

gentle scent of lavender

perfumes silent dreams

purple fields in evening praise

raise reverent cloistered blooms

 

 

European tour: Denmark

deep tidal currents

glean golden light of autumn

fjord of our dreams

imaginary toad in real garden

 

mr. toady,

poor bloke,

he croaked!

“call a spade

a raccoon,” i said.

go bury bumpy

next to his lumpy

mortician’s binary

fission beautician

beneath the

sassafras bush.

but whatever

you do, don’t

sneeze at rich

dark chocolate

syrupped-steak

served up hot

by pink-vested

bobble bunnies

with sides of steamy

blue lobster rainbows

under kettle-korn

skies…or you may

shatter my shiny

silver-plattered

mad-hattered

dreams.

So, what do you think of my new garden ornament?  Linked to d’Versepoets

flight of the eagle

stepping into the world of dreams

a silent cry                                (Chèvre)

 

a piercing eye sees dreams die

Awake!  fly free…forever         (lynn)
