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 —
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)
