Morning Haiku and Waka – April 25, 2015


sunroot flowers

the sunflower turns
following its lover
all throughout the day

this flash of lightning
distracts the way-ward lovers
caught in a rain storm

deep puddles reflect
the soaring flight of the swallow
over the open field


wind of time

wind of time


walking along the beach
flotsam and jetsam sculptures
delight the poet

waves crashing on the shore
Neptune’s wild contribution
to life’s symphony




 loudly making love
hidden in the dry rushes
ducks and swans

soaring into clouds
the seagulls look free from care
the wind whispers

in this rain storm
sparrows fly erratically
limp paper lanterns





in the darkest night
lightning outlines the shadows
creating a new world

these mountains
speak to me of creation
every morning





among peony
butterflies and cats play
before the rain falls

the nightingales song
distracts the poor sunflower
it hangs its head

  1. Wow — you did, indeed, write 12! The “creation” haiku (and photo) is my favorite! You put a lot of time into this series / story — and it’s beautifully woven. 🙂


    • lol! two entries were really quite enough … I misunderstood the prompt and for some reason wrote a haiku for each word … and it’s not as though I’d never written a full circle prompt before (she said shaking her head).


  2. It’s a gorgeous series of haiku Georgia, not quit what I was looking for … you just had to write 4 haiku using the twelve words, but you did a haiku with every word … awesome … very nicely done and maybe I am gonna use this idea of writing twelve haiku with this feature “Full Circle”. Chapeau!


    • I know … I didn’t read the prompt carefully and so wrote far too many. It was a definite challenge writing a haiku for every word! Thanks for reading the post!
