haiku heights again



I have been reading about Japanese and English haiku, senryu, haiga, and have learned, much to my disillusionment, that I may have missed the mark on some of mine.  So, I'll try to improve my writing



outpouring of love
true life-affirming homage
saintly image smiles

Haiku Heights


curiosity 
marvel at true differences
joke universal

haiku my heart


what is he saying
what does she think about him 
Is this summer love

Is this summer love 
overdressed for warm weather
neither has a smile

confident balance
sharp hooves grasp dam wall convinced
water won't flow soon

taunting tornado
hampers hopes of homesteading
pulverizes dreams

tackle it tuesday


ancient beams bless
sun and stone celebrate
earth harmonious

carry on tuesday


rich childhood dreams 
traveler teacher trainer
change who we can be

remember these days
airy aura graceful gift
 think back wistful smile

magical monday/blue monday


 As the day neared its close, there was a fine sea mist in the air...
A marriage of sea and sky

sunday wordle


Demon psychopath 
after sunset he waits
under an ample jasmine bush

a bird whistle disturbs his domain
he is trapped within his flawed montage
littered with scraps of granite resolve
window to his mind

postcards from paradise


I live in a place that is, in my unsolicited opinion, of unparalleled beauty and character.....The sea may be the 'sea-cret'!

onesingleimpression


two crystal-clear wings
journey flower on flower
sweet honey nectar

rural journal


  noisy pond awaits
 swan and duck visitations
lilies welcoming

Hard-won catch of food
Supports family desperate need 
Every day battle

haiku sensational


late light gauzed by mist
lone caller reverential
  better than postcards

Took this intriguing pic off Niles Beach - one of many beloved scenes in my native coastal town....

3WW


the world needs to maintain
a semblance of order
bad happens to bad

never omit this story
although a man's deeds may gag you
we learn from history

vivid bright hillside
a chimera of color
waiting to listen

is anybody out there
guru materializes
enlightening the hues

sunday whirl


a up-draft current of cool air
 lightening a string of fire
tracing clouds

thunder cracks rumbling 
refrain in my chest 
the racket unlatches fear

please refrain from striking
spare the earth your fire
temper and blend your fury

tackle it tuesday/carry on tuesday


strutting golden blooms
 prize-winning promenade
brilliant creation
------
net over bird-head
yes I can see clearly now
something fowl afoot


macro monday


 a cicada womb 
shell clings yet to its tree nest
gone to sing nightly

wordle #60


willow stands on bluff
 fronds tremble brushing shadows
 mud and stones below

Pink SaturdayHaiku


 capturing sunshine
cupping coping wind and rain
brimming with summer

These are the blossoms on my mountain laurel..

Haiku heights


sun closes brown eyes
 you smile for the camera
oh come back again

ordinary days
turn sad and lonely I weep
as your birthday nears

A photo of my sister, Grace...She has been gone nearly 2 years and I couldn't miss her more....We were the best of friends....

haiku my heart


cheating chipmunk
though known as a bird feeder
he may eat here too
----------
 backyard photo cheers
another sunless morning
trying to smile now

haiku sensational


love universal
words of worlds of mothering
for ourselves as well
--------------
utterance of love
universal tongues
saying be my world

haiku my heart


girl with mushroom hat
why would one do such a thing
worry of insects

[This is a wild mushroom on her head - ick....]
