#242

on a mountain path
where something might charm you
a wild violet

 

I hope to keep up on these posts as well and for there not to be any missed weeks. I have my own haiku scheduled to post on Monday. What haiku poets do you like?

Symbiosis Haiku

my plants and I
drink from the same cup
inside symbiosis

A Haiku on Climate Change

full snow moon
but still a grassy yard
climate change kills fun

I said that I would share more random haiku with you, so here you go.

   Autumn Colors
the season of dying
everyone’s favorite time
they like the colors
but forget the lesson
die to be born again
  September 6, 2017

 
 

So I had saved this little poem about me wondering why people think the way that they do, and I forgot to save it to my master file of tanka and haiku. But I found it!
What do you think?

 

Day 22 NaHaiWriMo 2018

the first time my son
didn’t want to go hiking
frost on new growth

 

Today’s prompt was “first frost” and I wanted to write about something getting nipped in the bud, as frost often kills things.

Posting every day is just not for me. So while I am able to write and post my haiku poems to the Facebook page, I will probably post every 2 days or so.

Black Moon Haiku

missouri sunrise,early morning,

red sun, black moon
sun gazing for the first time
total eclipse
  8- 21- 2017

 

I started writing again the day of the Full Solar Eclipse. I started writing poetry, but I have had trouble typing up blog posts. Side note, there are people out there who are “sun gazers” who stare at the sun. Don’t do that. But do leave me a like and a comment!

Thin Haiku

crawling to the edge
like a squirrel about to jump
trusting thin branches

This was written in response to a #haikuchallenge found on Twitter.

Day 28 NaHaiWriMo 2017

we say the flowers

are budding out too early

mother nature sighs

 
 

Today’s prompt was “nature” again. So I tried to write a haiku that was a comment on how climate change is making spring come sooner. What we call “too early” may be the new normal because of global warming.
Anyhow, this is my last poem for National Haiku Writing Month 2017. Be sure to check out the others and leave me a comment on your favorite haiku.

Day 19 NaHaiWriMo 2017

cherry blossoms

trying to beat the squirrels

to the fruit this spring

 

Today’s prompt was “cherry blossom” and I was thinking about when my mom had a cherry tree. She always tried to get enough cherries for one pie. But it was hard because she had a lot of squirrels and they would eat the cherries as soon as they turned ripe. 

You can follow me on Instagram and Twitter and Facebook. I would love to connect with you on Twitter as I need more followers on that site.

Haiku in Nature

stretch marks like bark on a tree trunk – the way nature shows maturity

 

I wrote this haiku for a #soulwords prompt on 7-1-2015.

Harsh Light Haiku

moonflower vine,moonflower blossom,closed moonflower,moonflower close up,

not wanting to be
judged in the harsh light of day
closed moonflower bloom

Some days you just want to curl up into a ball and ignore the fact that it is day.

Sparks

 

neon lights
alcohol draws people in
bug zapper sparks

I am really happy with this haiku. Haiku are supposed to have juxtaposition and I think I did a good job of that in this one.
