Murky Pond

Open Lilly in pond

murky pond –
still, life stirs
lotus blooms

Carpe Diem Haiku

First Light


with first light
comes a brush of frost
crocus blooms

Pat R


My contribution today is a haiku.

Today is Day 3 of NaPoWriMo where poets post an original pem as part of writing a poem a day for 30 days in the month of April..following a theme or prompt. Or not.

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

Pat R


Inspired by

the snow has melted
on one shoulder
of the Great Buddha


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


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


For Carpe Diem Haiku
