Carpe Diem Haiku Special – October 25, 2015

 

rainy dayautumn rains
spring-like days numbered
snow falls in the mounts

splashing in puddles
red boots and happiness
children play

pink sunset
a crow sits on an antenna
cawing off-key songs

dawn in Arco
a crow a sparrow and gunshots
new hunting season

winter hours
the clock went back to the sun
shorter days

November evening
the wind from a passing truck
ripples a roadside puddle

the sun goes down
my shovel strikes a spark
from the dark earth

a tide pool
in a clam shell
the evening sunlight

Summer Haze – Haiku – August 9, 2015

prurple mountainsummer haze
purpling the mountain tops
a flash of lightning

thunder storm
five minutes respite at dawn
day in a sauna

this fantasy
unfolds under the willows
summer afternoon

Carpe Diem Utabukuro #7 a drop of water by Cor van den Heuvel where our host introduces us to a new haiku poet:

reading a mystery
a cool breeze comes through
the beach roses

a drop of water
floats by the canoe
on a curled leaf
