ballerina water dance
frozen in motion
hydrangea surrounds the stage
This poem for Poetry Pantry at Poet’s United was written in the heart of winter. The ballerina in these haiku awaits the opening of spring’s curtain.
I am so grateful to Poet’s United for the interview about the poetry book for the orphans of Ebola in Liberia and to Kristjaan at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. If you are unfamiliar with these two poetry communities, please check them out.
Submissions are open until June 1st.
The poems being submitted are a beautiful chorus that fit so well together.
