Carpe Diem Haiku *Chiyo-Ni “Morning Glories”*

Haiku poet Chiyo-Ni has written several haiku about Morning Glories and a few of them today are our source of inspiration on Carpe Diem:

* * *
morning glory!
the well bucket-entangled,
I ask for water

* * *
morning glories —
awakened
in the middle of a dream

* * *
morning glory –
the truth is
the flower hates people

* * *
Now it’ s my turn to write haiku, trying to stay close to the same mood and spirit:

* * *
reaching towards
kisses of the sun
morning glory

* * *
silky petals unfold
glistening along the curves
tiny beads of dew

* * *

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge *Lou B.’s “the gargoyle takes flight”*

Lou B of Scatterbraining in response on Haiku Shuukan prompt “gothic” had written this haiku and our goal was to add a second stanza to it. Here I go:

warm sun gold limestone
embraced by creeping shadow
                             the gargoyle takes flight               (Lou B)

through the rays of blinding light
                            eyes follow a sudden fall           (Ese)

Sometimes It’s Beautiful Simply To Be

To be a moment before rain. When the black stormy clouds are burning over the rebellious white sand of the beach.

A moment before silence. When billows of the sea are trying to get rid of the rubbish, carried around like caravans of useless suitcases.

Before snow. When the full moon takes over the work of the sun’ s batteries allowing constellations to mix up one’ s foot-steps.

To be a moment before sleep. When flowers of shadow in the wet alsphalt are the only signs of one’ s presence .
