Quadrille – Journey

IMG_2017-10-22_15_48_20_bw black and white beach

Today it’s Quadrille at dVerse, with Mish hosting. The poem has to have exactly 44 words. The word that has to be included in the poem is “rock”.

Colorful pebbles wash ashore
as waves deposit a cache that rocks the
colors of the rainbow

How far have you come?

And what dreams did you stir on those far away shores?

Did they too, see the rainbow at the tips of their toes?

For Carpe Diem Haiku

 

Full Circle

rainbow of colors
scattered autumn leaves wind swept –
lingering seagull

the crane has come home
cherry blossom in full bloom
second chance at love

sunflower stands tall
blue sky on memorable
summer day, no clouds

butterfly on bush
alone, gorging on nectar
wings color of beer

Rainbow

1
burried deep
in gray skies
hint of hope

2
under dark gray skies
a bright yellow flower blooms
my hint of rainbow

Inspired by this quote by Maya Angelou

[…]“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”[…]

And these 2 haiku:

behind clouds
the bright sun hides her face
spraying colors

bridge to heaven
walking upon the colorful bow
