Haiku time friends!
Here are my entries - now let's have yours.
World swirls and transforms
Breath pulled in and eases out
Life moves me timeless
Red robin cries flies
Blue eggs wait for warm feathers
I step back with grace
Just posted a Haiku on my blog inspired by your theme..
Health, wealth, knowledge and happiness
These are the hallmarks of inner contentment
May God bless us all!
somewhere my watch counts the hours
no time to worry
i guess we've both equated timekeeping with displeasure! ;o)
i suppose inner contentment brings to mind asanas and psychology...
yoga and freud
smarter than average bears
oops, sorry boo-boo!
sigmund freud once said
all you need is love - and work!
i preferred the beatles
no past no future
just the quietness of the pose
in the here and now
and I don't cry or lament
so swans mate late
they mate forever
so the story goes.
Adventure to unknown state
Transcends space moment
Thoughts our energy
Emotions new dimensions
Spirits renew faith
the image is just great...but it gave me this sad feeling that the darkness and destruction is cominging over to the meiddle east..it made me think of the suffering children there..
god bless us all ..including this part of the world
It's a long dark night out there
What are you thinking?
Just a thought.
Lindsay, I particularly like the second one - 'Emotions new dimensions'
Haider - yes, the Middle East deserves our good thoughts ... and our action to support people there.
Susan - that's a beauty.
Cyber friends poets
Touched and moved by your fine words
Thoughts drift head to heart
Slid down my face and kissed me
and I felt Heaven.
I felt myself heal
after the kiss from the rain.
Now Hell is no more.
Nova - very beautiful imagry - especially since I picture it in NYC.
Where dreams float in the warm sun
My Irving inspired haiku.
Geez, Gary. I always hated the haiku, and now you've got me trying to write them. Badly, at that. Shame!
(cue sirens and lights)
what you've got are half senyrus half haikus here buddy, I'm gonna tink 'bout givin ya a ticket fer exceedin' yer poetic licence.
'member haikus are 'bout nature, descriptive only and don't always have to be 5,7,5 (dat der fit better wit dat Japanese langage)- senyrus are about basically ever't'ing else, but mainly people an' der emotions. . .
I'll let cha off with a warnin' dis time....
but I'll be watchin' cha....
- I might even get off me arse and write one fer ya too... ;-)
faith's display revealed
waxing hope's waning facade
opening arms touch
winter's night (tanka 5,7,5,7,7)
under snow ~ running water
frozen diamond cold
frigid Sprite blows vapour breath
bathing in Selene's light
Weapons of Soul Destruction
sculpts eternity's moss face
evokes pearl's paintbrush
okay stopping myself now.... ;-)
You can bust me for poetic crime anytime ... as long as you keep leaving gems behind like those above.
