Photo: Taken at the beach on a end-of-summer day, hurricane was in the winds. As the waves swept back out to sea I got this shot. Very shiny!!

wind and rain
torturing young leaves
– bruised buds

mountain trail –
the silence broken
monk’s footsteps

river calms –
summer breeze hugs frame
as she strolls

snow atop
sparrow’s evergreen –
now, blue sky

Photo: Taken on the butterfly bush outside my window, a windy day.

misty rain
sprinkling young leaves..
tender buds

in mountain vistas
therapeutic silence..
a monk contemplates

sounds from the river
feel of balmy summer breeze..
she sits with eyes closed

before the first snow
sparrows feast on red berries..
gray replace blue sky

Carpe Diem Haiku prompt: Full Circle

“Full Circle” means:


“…the goal is to write haiku with the twelve (12) words I will give. It’s a kind of word-whirl and you have to use the words given in the clock-wise direction. So every word has to come in the line of it’s place on the clock e.g. rainbow you have to use for line one (1) and autumn for line two (2) and so on… twelve (12) words (for every ”hour”) one word. The goal is to write haiku using the words as given in the clockwise way”.

Here are the twelve (12) words, for every hour one word, you have to use this time:

1. rain
2. young leaves
3. buds
4. mountain
5. silence
6. monk
7. river
8. summer breeze
9. she
10. snow
11. sparrow (s)

Stones

blue river stone
smooth beneath my fingers
a calming effect

 Inspired by:

words of god
spoken softly by
river stones

moonset
where the water was
a white stone

beach nap
the afternoon covers me
with stone shadow
