Haiku Series I: Levels of a Pond

pond mirrors dawn:
 losing its feet bittern 
bows to sip gold 
reeds sprout from blue sky, 
a frog jumping into clouds 
misses lily-pad 
a lotus droops 
kissing its lotus-self, 
sky and sun ripple 
between frog croaks  
calm hovers with dragonflies 
bliss above the pond

3 haiku


From Carpe Diem Writing and Enjoying Haiku #6 new ways Friday, September 1, 2017
prompted three haiku from me:

2017-09-02 haiku red sky
red sky morning
whips scarlet and darkened clouds
into hurricanes

2017-09-02 sunset stills
sunset stills the sea
except rings of blood droplets:
rising crimson tide

2017-09-02 haiku triptych
painting a nova:
whorls of red concentric waves
thrown from dazzling light
