Morning Haiku and Waka – January 22, 2015

The poppies testify to the blood sacrified in war...

cuckoo cuckoo
cuckoos echo through the woods
summer serenade

old grey-beard
walks past slowly slowly
towards the grave yard
with plants and old water can
he goes to adorn her grave

 return spring sunshine
welcome spring migrants and blooms
swallows return soon

Here I’m trying to use repetition after reading the interesting lesson on Carpe Diem Haiku Kai’s “Haiku Writing Techniques”

  1. I love your morning waka every day and now I am curious as to this lesson I have missed…will have to catch up on the reading at CP this weekend…too busy at work…last supervision tomorrow with Attila…haha:)


      • But you do soooooo much cara! and I don’t have a hubby to cater to (wink) I worked late tonight to finish my report and it takes me 10 times longer to write it in French. don’t know why I try to make it so grand, it’s going to get criticized again anyway.
