The Pixie Path paintedfirst spring

You accent the frills

pave a fairy path

 whisper in spring’s blooms

paint the canyons grandly

say goodbye to the day

    1. Well, no, it might not be a true haiku, but I like the way it continues this pteioc conversation.Here’s a way different poem that derives from your poem, trying to turn it into more of a haiku. Alpine lodge I wake from a dreamof summer riversThis takes away the personification in assures. (Human beings offer assurance. Snow just melts.) It also addresses the cause-and-effect issue that’s come up lately.Well that’s not your poem, Brad, I know! I just used your poem for an exercise about haiku.


      1. The word old has been the subject of much dicsussion in the haiku literary world. On the one hand, as a modifier it often evokes a haiku-appropriate feeling of transience, and the beauty of natural decay. On the other hand, it’s been used so often in haiku, it’s kind of worn out. Too much old gets old! But ancient in this poem is different, and evokes the generations of olive trees in that region. I like ancient olives.


    1. My partner and I semlbutd over here coming from a different web address and thought I might check things out. I like what I see so i am just following you. Look forward to going over your web page yet again.


  1. Life is different in pink. But then, life changes every time you give it a new color, which is what writers do. A black road is far different from a yellow brick road. It always is.
