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!
