Orange Persimmons … Haiku – August 7, 2015


those haunting bagpipes
mists over the foreign highlands
a call for freedom

This second haiku is closer to my reality …  😉

This was written for Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille August 5th 2015 “completing the haiku” and it was quite an original feature indeed – and not as simple as it might seem on first sight … here’s Chèvrefeuille’s haiku example:

ancient warriors ghosts
mists over the foreign highlands –
waiting for the full moon

Full Circle in brief – April 25, 2015


a sunflower bows
in the howling rain storm –
puddles like seas

those tiny beaches
with their small rhythmic waves –
puddles making love

frightened seagulls
screech in the wind-filled rain storm –
lightning and thunder

on the high mountain
a lone red peony grows
nightingale’s lover

I didn’t read the prompt carefully so in the first post I actually wrote 12 haiku … here is how the prompt was supposed to be written … sorry, Bastet
