looking for eden

caretakers of earth

placed in garden for purpose

listen to the soil

all creatures on green planet

need resources to sustain

forget-me-not blooms

honeyed pollen on bees knees

tulips press rose hips

 

lover like flower garden

in all its morning glory!

imagism on old relic

 

small windmill teeters

on edge of tired garden,

steel frame shows rust

thru dull aluminum paint,

concrete pad tips slightly,

buried under snowdrift.

 

faded red tail fin hangs limp

unresponsive to bitter wind

as head, spun clean away,

lies on frozen ground, useless,

one broken blade

now missing.

 


Linking to dVerse Poets where Victoria explains “imagist” poetry:  Imagists sought to represent “things” in clear, precise language—in the words of Ezra Pound, “luminous details.”

garden pail holds cabbage head

salivates coleslaw

white petals flirt

                                  passing wings

                                                        dainty cabbage pests

 


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

virtual ball in Tuscany

abbondanza

invitation to

a poets’ party

yes, i’ll come!

where?  what

better place than

Boboli’s garden;

grounds of the

Pitti Palace, in

fair Florence,

heart of the

renaissance.

 

hanging out

at “the Pub”,

d’Verse Poets,

is part of my

personal poetic

renaissance;

fair garden of

wordsmiths,

each statuesque,

monumental in

creative voice.

 

here i can

find “The (an)

Abundance” of

poetic ideas,

original online

fruits of writers

dedicated to

sculpting marble

thoughts into words

to share veritable

bounty of beauty.

 

raise your hand

clink the glass

give a toast (of

bronze wheat,

golden corn or

ripened vine)

to salute the

“pub tenders”,

party hosts who

serve all a happy

3rd anniversary!

My response to CDHK prompt to “revise” master haiku 🙂

farm garden sonnet

Emeralds are growing in this plot of mine;

Wet diamonds drip along each stem and blade.

Pea pods hold treasured pearls of the vine,

Rich mud deposits wealth upon my spade.

Huge heads of cabbage split with dewy weight

Match mercenary broccoli’s envied green.

Tomatoes blushed like rubies tempt and bait.

Potatoes’ karats gain interest unseen,

While beans of jade hide underneath soft leaf,

And sweet corn kernels ripen time to gold.

Why should I share my gems with raccoon thief?

Let’s harvest booty till the ground turns cold.

A cornucopia of food to live!

Thanksgiving’s a small price for us to give.

 Image

breathe!

 

Still-life form lay in garden;

very image of the holy tri-unity

perfectly cast in brown clay.

 

The divine animator stoops,

gently cradles prone body, then

exhales his inimitable spirit life.

 

Heart beats as chest rises;

eyes flutter open in surprise

as first man meets his maker.

 

Breathe on us, into us,

that we, so cold dead in sin,

might inhale pure love with

 

respirations of clear joy,

to live grace-full and forgiven;

the image of God, restored.
