among window curtains’ flower
a blade of gray sky

reaching for the stars and the moon

among the fresh laid pebbles
sunflowers sprout

#1850 Dried Grass

Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Celebrates Its 9th Anniversary: #1850 dried grass

tabi ni yande yume wa kareno wo kake meguru

falling sick on a journey
my dream goes wandering
over a field of dried grass

Pandemic lockdown
hospice patients pass
without witness

Autumn walk
decapitated mushrooms
line the path

~~~

Unending rain
Black spot and root rot
Embrace the garden

~~~

Autumn cold
my thoughts swimming
in lemon tea

~~~

Changing seasons
another leave released
to the wind

~~~

autumn tears
an oak tree drowns
in a mushroom cap

~~~

Pandemic scare
my dreams mired
in stagnant pool

~~~

Autumn prayers
a monarch Butterfly lands
on my outstretched hand
