Reblog: Morning Haiku and Waka – NaPoWriMo – April 5, 2016

From Bastet’s Waka Library on Blogger

And a tanka:

morning serenade
sweet perfume of mimosa
and thoughts of you
what more can be said of spring
then a warming I love you?

Whirligig 17 – Waka Wordleing – July 27, 2015

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Under Stars” by Tess Gallagher: flag, coatless, slices, stars, games, walk, touch, thinking, kitchen, envelope, roadside, say:

old flag flew
without stars on the roadside
we walked and you’d say
I want slices of heaven
to remember you by

our winter games
you enveloped me boldly
and your gentle touch
left me breathlessly thinking
coat-less in the kitchen
