wind vs. sun

Carpe Diem‘s “tan renga” challenge…add 2 line response to original haiku.

 

the cold wintry wind
is blowing so hard that
the sun sinks into the ocean

today, sun admits defeat
tomorrow, will rise stronger

aki no koe

Linking to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai… “aki no koe” is a Japanese kigo, seasonal word, that refers to autumn’s voice, the sound of wind through decaying leaves.

sounds of silver

 

breeze whispers in trees

shaking,  sighing, quivering

summit ash leaves quake

 

listen to metal

red tail fin turns, grey blades spin

garden windmill squeaks

 

hear tinkling music

chimes dangle on staggered strings

dance with spring zephyr

 

Version 2

view from my kitchen window

 

epilogue:

do you hear the wind?

whirring sound but no air moves

fan noise app for sleep

ominous chill

My attempt at “fusion” prompt (see CDHK) to fuse two haiku into one new one.

the crow has flown away:

swaying in the evening sun,

a leafless tree.

 

over the wintry

forest, winds howl in rage

with no leaves to blow.

raucous wind stirs crows

black “leaves” clinging to bare tree

murderous caws rise

snow follows easter

Haiku inspired by quote (Carpe Diem Haiku Kai) in less-than-inspiring weather.

elemental valor

Linking to Haiku Horizons prompt: forge

 

as blizzard winds roar

think washington’s army in

valley forge winter

volatile situation

Chevrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai hosts haiku/troiku prompt.  He gifts us with first line: “when every gust of wind.”  Each stanza of troiku begins with next line from original haiku.

 

when every gust of wind
fans bright flames of fire higher
smoke and ashes whirl

________

when every gust of wind
exhales crackles, sizzles, pops
wood door comes unhinged

fans bright flames of fire
higher heat of inferno
old shed roof crumbles

smoke and ashes whirl
choking billows engulf all
inhale acrid breath

I admit to selecting more (and more) words to complete this magnetic poem.

*blowin’ in the wind

earth’s richest

black prairie sod

iowa: “beautiful land”

created by God

claimed by man

wrested from dakota hand

busted, homesteaded,

settled, plowed and

tightly fenced now

as livestock farmers

raise calves from cows

how long sustainable?

dust bowl-like shroud

wind so untamable

we’re losing ground!


*Title from a favorite Bob Dylan song…he recently received a Nobel Peace Prize.  (One good thing about a wet fall this year is less dirt in the air.)

ghostly silhouettes

naked exposure to wind

squirrels find hollow
