Spider Webs and Things – Morning Haiku and Waka – September 28, 2014

It’s been a while since I’ve written haiku and tanka here … excluding Eos the other morning.  I’ve transferred a lot of the haiku over to my blogger blog – Bastet’s Waka Library – because I have more space for photos and I’ve found that the editor is really easy to use without a lot of nonsense changes.  That said .. here’s Morning Haiku and Waka for you!


umbrella trap
dead bugs in the larder
dried autumn flowers

where is the spider
who made the umbrella web
the flowers now dead
still don the silken white veil
full of food – now abandoned

among red leaves
cyclamens and spider webs

    • I don’t know if that’s a real scientific term .. it’s just what it reminded of … glad you liked the expression and the poems dearest .. hope you’re doing well. I’ve been tied up walking for the past week, making up for the lost summer 🙂


  1. Sometimes life gives you spider webs, and sometimes life gives you flowers. 🙂
    This is a great series but the tanka really shines — especially the spider web as a veil.
