paint chip poetry

 

what the world needs?
ask any child and they’ll say:
swimming pool in my backyard
or smiling dandelion bouquet!

turn world into arboretum
smell the wonderful wisteria
pass around free cotton candy
play in full moon lit mysteria

please rub on that gold genie lamp
and send us all to summer camp!

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

wysteria myst

From Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, a haiku to “revise”:

 

in the moonlight,

the color and scent of the wisteria

seems far away

© Yosa Buson (1716-1784)

hear flute softly weep

pale purple tears in moonlight

dropping over wall

tan renga party

A tan renga is written by two poets;  first writes a haiku, second answers with 2 more lines…

 

in the moonlight
Wisteria flowers look fragile –
a gust of wind

lovers on bench hold kisses

lavender snow covers path
