Carpe Diem Haiku Special – July 28, 2016

Cypress trees

I’ve been off again and although the hotel advertised  wi-fi it wasn’t at all efficient!  Anyway, I’m back and I will try to make up for my absence!

I have Carpe Diem Haiku Kai as my opening page on my browser and so I was able to immediately see this lovely prompt dedicated to the renowned haiku poet and anthologist of women’s haiku Patricia Donegan.  Here are the two haiku that Chèvrefeuille used for the post:

As rain drops diminish
I hear the tapping
of the monk’s wooden bell.

Tonight
the cypress tree & I
lean into the wind.

As you know the purpose of the Carpe Diem Haiku Special is to fall into the spirit of the poet and their poetry and try to write in the same spirit as the author.  Here is my attempt:

under rain and wind
bending along the trail
the tree and the monk

Haiku – April 12, 2014 – NaPoWriMo

raindrops

raindrops

raindrops on branches
like tears on sad cheeks falling
cleansing the clouds

one more raindrop
adding to seas and rivers
flowers drink deeply

face Ito the rain
wind whipping hair and body
spring showers falling

new green and blooms
the mountainside full of life
raindrop elixir
