Poetry and Haiku

Dust Storm

along the horizon
a dust cloud rises and swoops
a strange bird of prey


Carpe Diem haiku Kai: Sunday Time Challenge #2: rainbow

weeding the garden
foreboding afternoon sky
graced with a rainbow


misstep in puddle
a rainbow swirls and clings
to my new boots

Sunday morning
my grandchild ask me to sew
a rainbow tie


quiet evening
through bare branches
a pale rainbow

early evening
three fish swim though
rainbow on my floor

Return of Carpe Diem Haiku Kia

Hopefully this is the return of regular postings at Carpe Diem. Playing catch up since I was not aware Kristjaan was posting again.


Carpe Diem Haiku Kai #1857: a meditation.

stormy weather
with the dawn a fallen oak
cry of a new grandchild


Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Weekend Meditation #100: waves of love

sleepless night
dark shadows mock the moon
shivering with cold

suddenly warm arms reach out
waves of love enfolding me


Carpe Diem Haiku Kai #1856: Restarting?

smoldering rubble
all the crazies
spread conspiracies


Carpe Diem Haiku Kai #1358 Clouds
