Melting Snow

Carpe Diem Special #193 Revise That Haiku … a trip along memory lane

crocus blooms among
the last of the melting snow
first hello of spring

Inspired by

the snow has melted
on one shoulder
of the Great Buddha

Shiki

at the sunny side
the snow in the backyard has melted-
snowdrops are blooming

Chèvrefeuille

on the thin line
between day and night
both, moon and sun shine

For Carpe Diem Haiku

Missed the cut off time so thought I’d post it here.

 

Cathedral of Ice

I was watching a documentary on an under sea expedition in antartica. They were investigating what was causing the demise of the krill, favorite food of whales and other sea life. Divers went under the ice with cameras. The result..a bonus. Described by one immersed in the experience as “under sea cathedrals…”, very appropriately so…
The colors cast onto the ice by daylight was an amazing sight. It looked like the northern lights viewed from under water and ice.

south pole’s under sea
cathedral of ice – steeples
sprinkled with rainbow

Christmas

Taken tonight, Christmas Eve

here in the north east
it’s the night before Christmas
not a snow flake in sight

full moon in dance with the clouds
only show I’ve seen tonight

Merry Christmas to all. And to all who stopped by, said hello, left an impression and graced my writing with words of appreciation – I thank you!

WALKING THROUGH

Carpe Diem Special #137, Santoka Taneda’s 3rd “walking through “

Prompt challenge is to compose an all new haiku in the spirit of Santoka Taneda:

walking through
the bush clover, the pampas grass,
walking on through them

WALKING THROUGH

walking through ant hill
barefoot on a summer day
day ruined, ruined

STORM

stroked by the lightning
delicate peaks of sand dunes
-silence before the storm

                                      (Ese)

time for one last stroll before
mother nature comes calling
