Returning to Normal

Carpe Diem #1844 Returning Back To Normal (I Hope)

cautious journey
meeting newest grandson
ten months late 

summertime journey
obscure paths explored
still social distancing

Mist Clouds

Carpe Diem #1843 Troiku Challenge 1: Mist Clouds

roaring down the beach
at the height of winter waves
mist clouds

roaring down the beach
tufts of white foam
flapping in the wind

at the height of winter waves
surfers gearing up to catch
wind fetch gracing coast

mist clouds
ramble the rock face
heightening the surge

fragile beauty
windows glazed over
crystal frost feather

cranberries covered with sugar
garnish rich cake tops
abet temptation 

first hoarfrost
crying kitten wakes household
to winter wonderland

Fusion Ku and Troiku – A Huge Wave

Carpe Diem #1799 New Beginnings … a huge wave (Crossroads feature)

a huge wave
thundering across the beach
my birthday

sky-clad
the new-born comes wrapped
in previous lives .                   Jane Reichhold 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

sky – clad dreams
thundering wave crashes
wrapped in memories

 

sky – clad dreams
fill the air with excitement
newborns first cry

thundering wave crashes
emotions run rampant
new parents

wrapped in memories
grandparents kindly smile
treasure-trove of love

in deep prayer
grandmother chants
a favorite verse

eyes closed in devotion
she slowly nods
mother smiles faintly

lotus starts to bloom
whistling kettle, sweet aroma
draw her back again

Breathing Silence

Carpe Diem #1688 Troiku Month (17) Breathing Silence

alone on the beach
only the cries of seagulls –
breathing silence                                    © Chèvrefeuille

alone on the beach
tide pools reflecting

storm clouds gather

breathing silence
mingled with salt and sadness
rain on the h

Heat Waves

Carpe Diem #1687 Troiku Month (16) Heat Waves

heat waves
bringing to the desert
an ocean view

heat waves
atmospheric shimmering
summer pavement

bringing to the desert
spreading color
a quenching rain

an ocean view
wave after breaking wave
desert of sameness

heat waves
bringing to the desert
an ocean view

© Jane Reichhold (extracted from “A Dictionary of Haiku”, the online version)

heat waves
ripple though the air
distant thunder stirs

bringing to the desert
a lonely contenance
vast array of silence

an ocean view
drifting mountains
of 
shifting sands

Nightingale

Carpe Diem #1686 Troiku Month (15) Nightingale

to listen,
fine not to listen, fine too…
nightingale                                                © Chiyo-Ni (1703-1775)

to listen,
sounds of the night
stir with mystery

fine not to listen, fine too…
late night cricket serenade
the creak of the swing

nightingale
your soft trill
fills the emptiness
