Andromeda Flowers

Andromeda flower – CDHK

 

andromeda suite

flowers cascade, stars twinkle

galactic music

new life on the farm

tulips point skyward
pregnant buds open up life
colorful prayers

_______

speckled easter eggs
killdeer cry out distraction
spring clutch nests on ground

_______

raindrops kiss clover
walk barefoot across wet lawn
holding hands with spring

_______

straw bedding in barn
cows moo news of fresh spring calves
maternity ward

_______

mews, purrs, stretches paw
mama nurses new kittens
fur balls’ eyes closed tight

_______

blossoms pop purple
rhododendron awakens
spring resurrection

 

seasons flow

 

warm weather thaw

spring is winter’s changeling child

ice water gurgling

 

Linking to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai‘s “yukidoke” (thaw) theme.

emergent green

 

spring’s first green mirage

tulip swords salute warm sun

birdsong resurgence

fuchsia snow

Inspired by post at CDHK on “potted plant” meme….

cyclamen blooms in bucket

greens from spring garden

she carries in may basket

to feed young rabbits

warren on edge of forest

fresh meadow of blue flowers

sleeping with spring

contentment is green

Earth’s new spring green

sings a theme serene

for ears and eyes keen

to creation’s pastoral scene.

 

On hills’ grassy sheen

fresh rain-washed clean

sheep shearer has seen

fluff-puff wool to glean.

 

A poets’ paradise pristine,

if you know what i mean.

 

 

For dVerse Poets “green” quadrille challenge and with my apologies to Luci Shaw 🙂

 

spring notes

Playing with tan renga form at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai

forgotten flute

shadows of leaves
cover the open holes
her flute forgotten

she dances with woodland nymphs

notes floating on music of trees

umbrella forgotten

 

mud puddles

announce spring is here

splash outdoors

jump to rhymes

“rain in spain falls on the plain”

yellow raincoat joy

 


The “shadorma” is a poetic form consisting of a six-line stanza (or sestet). The form is alleged to have originated in Spain. Each stanza has a syllable count of 3/5/3/3/7/5 for a total of 26 syllables. A poem may consist of one stanza, or a series.  Link to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.
