stiff legged is fall’s fawn
I circled her fresh face with my fingertips
ruby red were her luscious lips
spring her blossom ever green
awaken not from this dream
summer harsh it takes the glow
dew’s gone, nothing will grow
our love languish in her eyes
robbing heat I ever despise
colors change, bouquet of woe
her faded lips her time I know
nothing lasts, she is so pale
catch the fall, of her I’ve failed
brightens my day
seasons flow like water
can’t catch red petals

For this week’s Carpe Diem Tokubetsudesu “back in time” episode we are prompted to write a new haiku or tanka with the beginning lines:
“with bare feet”
And here is the haiku, inspired on a quote by Khalil Gibran, from Kristjaan:
with bare feet
dancing on Mother Earth’s grounds
wind plays with my hair
with bare feet
distant squeals of ocean play
mesmerised by sand
my eyes radiate your blue
toes long to dance on white fluffiness
fingers spin imaginary cotton candy
tease us as you form animal shapes
dancing on sky’s dance floor with ease
elusive are your sweet offerings
What do you think of when you behold clouds?
Today’s One word prompt at WordPress is Clouds
For the nth time, I wish I could put into words the thoughts burning in my mind. I feel that more than ever, I have expressed myself badly. I do not know how you could take interest in reading all these muddled thoughts.
