Haiku – Creation June 25, 2014

Chèvrefeulle tells us:

It’s time for a new Ghost Writer (GW) post. The following GW-post is by Gillena Cox of Lunch Break and it was scheduled for May 2014, but there were circumstances which made that Gillena could not deliver it at time, so here is here belated GW-post with the prompt ”Creation”.

And this is what she’s written, inspiring us to write following the lead of Chiyo-ni:

When i read the biblical account in the book of Genesis of creation, i am confronted with the aspects of completion, satisfaction, and goodness; how unlike the reality of man’s stewardship, in our continuous and ongoing process of doing, crafting and tireless improving; when will we get it right or maybe the question is can we?


spring rain-
all things on earth
become beautiful

endless energy
swirling in darkest matter

Carpe Diem Ghost Writer May 5, Matsuo Basho

Chèvrefuelle has had the honor of having Matsuo Basho as his 5th ghost writer of the month!

The theme is creation.

Following are some of Matuso Basho’s wonderful haiku to inspire the Haijin:

In the moonlight
a worm silently drills
through a chestnut

in blossoms
a horsefly plays… don’t eat it

petal by petal
yellow mountain roses fall —
sound of rapids

Eaten alive by
lice and fleas — the horse pees
beside my pillow

© Matsuo Basho

What a master haiku writer!  Here are my attempts to write for Matsuo Basho…

lampost and flowers

dawn’s splender
streaming down the mountains
flowers bloom

crickets chirping
tossing in my bed
mosquito dines

rock garden
bees gather pollen
sweet harvests

white flowers
near a lampost in Arco

Well…that is my best for the moment…hope you enjoyed the post, but for more and better haiku and great prompts as well as information drop by Carpe Diem Haiku Kai
