path finder with each stride
run with the wind
the open window
screened with a web
raise the misty morning veil
mother leads her fawns to drink
Today’s Tan Renga challenge #108 at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is to echo Jane Reighhold’s beautiful haiku.
Join along and try the classic expression so enjoyed the world over.
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
Lift, weight, drag
nature needs no calculation
elements take flight
birds effortless soar
seasons provide inspiration
view from the eyrie
uncontrolled the wind
my mind shifts to the stars
blinded by moon dust
The prompt for Poet’s United Midweek Motif is “Wind Power.”

happy you tend to the garden
waking me daily with song
bringing cheer never sorrow
I find myself singing along
more work is there in the morrow
gather and fashion a nest
complaints never are filed
rarely do you stop for a rest
little one out in the wet storm
no jacket to fend off the rain
grateful for your reminder
sun always follows the pain
I take my pen sadly to paper
to write about someone I love
gone toward braodened horizons
taken gently to heaven above
birds joyful refrain
tears fall freely
Today at Poet’s United the prompt is Birds.
This haibun is lovingly written for my father-in-law Robert who left us today.
