Carpe Diem Little Creatures

Wren

Carpe Diem Little Critters # 20 Wren

jennywren3

tiny jenny wren
with her song joyous and loud
awakening all

~~~

on a winter morn
wren checking spider webs
for breakfast tidbits

~~~

amid the ivy
jenny wren performs
serenade

~~~

cherry warbles
resound on the air
wren’s song

~~~

solo performance
little wren with her tail poised
showing her all

This poem is an old one from 2001.  Thought I tried to edit it to free style form but not very successful, or does it just become a different poem all together?

Farms near Auvers, 1890 by Vincent Van Gogh

in the glade
Twisted vines and marigolds
our house of sunshine

hidden in the tall grass
our house of twigs and buttercups
awaiting fairies

~~~~~~~~

against the cold
this old house shelters us
with warmth

 Carpe Diem: Little Creatures #14 Spring Rain

Challenge: all new haiku in the classical way (5-7-5; cutting-word; season word; deeper meaning; inter-changeable first and third line) inspired on a haiku written by Matsuo Basho about a Hornet’s nest
suzumebachino su kara yane doro darake no mizutamari wo kaishi te haru no ame wo shizuku
spring rain,
leaking through the roof,
dripping from the wasps’ nest.

Not familiar with these snails, i just wrote about the tiny ones in my garden.

on my son’s porch
every dawn and dusk
snails congregate

silver snail trails
sparkle in the dirt
early morning

lichen covered branch
rots on ground
underneath a few fat snails
