African Haiku – Silvery Curtain – July 15, 2015

For this episode of Carpe Diem Special #156 Adjei’s third “silvery curtain” Chèvrefeuille has given us both the background history of this month’s guest poet and his entries from this week’s challenges to use as inspiration for an original haiku by ourselves trying to reflect his sense and style.  I’ve chosen waterfall … though it was difficult to choose just one!

Waterfall

silvery curtain
on a mountain wall –
waterfall!

§§§§§§

shimmering
tumbling from the mountain
waterfall!

waterfall!
flying droplets of crystal
studding the bushes

studding the bushes
with diamonds and silver
pounding water

§§§§§

among the rocks
hidden in the thorn bushes
a tiny waterfall
unseen from the dusty trail
inviting sound of water

in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
