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.
darkness is cruel
eyes neither open nor close
no feeling in void
screams stifled behind closed doors
you inflicted this
firefly moment so bright
pin holes of hope
light cauterizes split heart
awaits gold of day
Sharing with Poet’s United Midweek Motif – the prompt is Inanimate.
You have to admit
it never grows old
daily beauty I see
tho admittedly cold
tiny hands that are joined
each and every tide
drawing lines in the sand
lovely never subsides
and the children what glee
spontaneous in their fun
every time its a romp
catching ankles in the sun
every day is the best
and I promise that I dream
for a window to a new day
sun dawns on color streams
Have a listen
revelations of the sea
paint a picture
The Prompt today At Poets United Midweek Motif is Color. There are so many ways to go when writing about color – each a palette of beauty. And yes I am waxing a bit Dr. Seuss (wink)
my eyes long to caress you smooth as silk
your bronze glow accentuated by dawn
my fingers can only momentary trace a message
watery “I love yous” fade away
as the sea draws lacy covers back
remnant of a long night blurrs
gold red rays warm your skin
long legged birds celebrate your awakening
I a mere voyeur watch…
the morning rises from slumber
meeting the sea’s welcome embrace
I inhale the beauty of a new day
This week’s prompt at Poet’s United Midweek Motif is Beauty. Where in the world do you see beauty?
