Autumn Haiku(s) 2017

07 Oct

 

I taste food at dusk

I eat my meal in the light

by shadow of moon

 

Blue Haiku(s)

Blue mussels cling rocks

Tide and moon are true lovers

Boiling for supper

****

Blue skies parting leaves

Green grass below aging feet

Balance beneath me

****

Blue birds sang in spring

Announcing flower trumpets

Shook summer to rise

****

Morning Glory blue

Summer’s last call before fall

Welcomes winter frost

****

    I love all of these – each one deals with something I love, and says it beautifully.

    The second haiku is pure delight. It reads as if it’s dancing right out of the mouth of Autumn…

    I read your comment on Jae’s blog. Interesting. What I am doing, is abstracting, or simplifying my poems to the least words I can use, and still get the meaning. I guess it is sorta like what you are doing….finding the meaning.

    A beautiful way to welcome winter. All the haiku offerings are marvelous.

    I have query do we really have to follow 5/7/5 syllable rule for Haiku now a days or its it up to the poet?

    I know Haiku seems like a simple form, but I have trouble writing them, getting to a simple three line expression. You do it so well. I love these and I envy your talent.

    Morning glories. Do they really welcome winter? I wonder. Maybe they have nothing to lose, since they’re here today and gone tomorrow. Such short-lived blossoms!
