Autumn Quatrain

The challenge today is to write a quatrain.
The beauty of the quatrain (4 lines with an AABA rhyme)
I’ve never written one before. But here goes:

Across the yard wind blown leaves frolic
As I revel in this autumn classic
They pick up speed going the other way
Swell of the russle adds art to graphics

Thotpurge Micropoetry Month



in my garden
starflowers bloom
come and see

in my garden
a kitten chasing a bird
he thinks he can fly

starflowers bloom
glow in moonlight
earth borne stars

come and see
the drizzle of autumn leaves
outside my window

For Carpe Diem Haiku: Meditation Troiku


Daily Haiku Challenge

WP Weekly Photo Challenge:Trio



Summer flowers are still blooming in my garden.

Clearly on this 61 degree fall day, I’m not the only one confused. Or just maybe this is its time, and I am the one in the dark.

Have a good week and a happy turkey day (Thanksgiving). Before you delve in, remember to embrace and give thanks for all you have to be thankful for!

In the Darkest Hour

Carpe Diem Special #182 Ese’s third “in the darkest hour”


This post’s origins started here earlier this year:

morning prayers
the rising sun between
my hands

I remember this haiku by Kala, I was very moved. It inspired this haiku of mine:

morning prayers
a new chance to live
in the light of God
Pat R

Kala’s haiku inspired this from Ese:

in darkest hour
wishing upon the morning star
just like years ago

Now here is my inspiration for Ese’s:

in the darkest hour
silence gives rise to His voice –
a flicker of light
