Foundations

Preparation

sunshine gold, flame red
leaves fall to nourish the earth
birthing rich black soil

0 - green butterfly

In the Moment

here I am in time
working out a rhyme
wishing for something sacred

ruing the mundane
making me insane
I should be thankful instead

there is such beauty
in daily duty
if I just take time to see

dishwater rainbows
fragrant dying rose
each small thing brings its own glee

0 - green butterfly

seraphim


wafting on the wind
skirring among stars
glances twinkling fine hairs
as if they really were watching
over the times
I should’ve died
yet lived
hearing voices
with diaphanous breath
like sheer lace curtains
of flickering light
wrapping warmly around me

  7. Fascinating to notice our word choices and the underlying sentiments. Recognize how you read the energy and emotions of word choices. From the moment you awaken, self-defeating habits no longer exist. Every choice is meaningful and empowers you to grow.

  11. I don't generally go for Haiku, but I like this one. Very earthy.

    Glee in dishwater - that could be a challenge.

  21. where do I start? Your prep Haiku is wonderful I wish spring were that much closer. The Allouette is Marvelous!Dish water rainbows what a great line to show others how to the beauty in simplicity. So what is next? You've conquered the Allouette on to something new you should try a Haibun they're super fun!

  24. Dear Nessa

    Lovely haiku and the 'in the moment' great.
    But the one that touched me was Seraphim. Beautiful, specially the last line... thanks for sharing..

  25. Like your poems, Nessa.
    The allouette is an interesting form. Yours is a cute little ditty that mixes mindless thoughts (??) and throws them in a basket.

    One of these weeks I will start 'writing' again.
