Carpe Diem Haiku

Fire & Rain

at the first rain drops
I move to the window seat
crackling fire
and rhythm on tin roof, I’m
seduced by the elements

chasing bubbles

a summertime ritual

a rite of childhood –

floating rainbows

Haiku Compilation

playing the blues with
more than a touch of Indigo –
swamps the night sky

cry of the seagulls
gliding in the spring sunshine
a stray summer day

night bird soars
by light of the moon
eagle eyes

in a fleeting glance
feel of the familiar
from somewhere in time

forbidden love
longing would not be quieted
above all else love

For Jane Dougherty Writes

Prompt words:
indigo, cry, night bird, fleeting, forbidden
