Dawn – September 8, 2016 (Carpe Diem Haiku Kai)

On Carpe Diem Haiku Kai today the challenge is: Try to create a haiku in which you use “the fragment and phrase” way of writing haiku using the Jan’s modern kigo, dawn.  Here are a few examples of this technique particular to haiku using Jane Reichhold’s haiku:

rosy dawn
colors the moon
into the sea

spring dawn
darkness flies from the trees
with the bird

the sound of waves
on your sleeping face
dawn light

© Jane Reichhold

and by our host Chèvrefeuille:

her naked body
glistens from sweat
after a hot night

daylight brightens
a rooster crows his sun greet
the silence deepens

© Chèvrefeuille

rainy dawn

wet dawn
greeting another day
with raindrops

 this hidden spring
refreshes who quaffs
as dawn passes

at dawn
the swallows swoop
into the sun

in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
