Her face turns, the petals stretch toward the sunlight,
She stands tall, and ready for the nascent day,
Already seeing that the possibilities are bright —
She teaches me by showing, as her silent words say,
Stand, bloom, let worries not destroy,
The true light on your face will impart joy.
I could not resist writing a poem about this sunflower that I saw in the garden this morning. Shared with the Tuesday Platform.
Milky Way swirling:
The night sky is black coffee
Made sweeter with stars.
For this haikai prompt.
For the weekend prompt here, we are writing about water. The original post included the research of Masaru Emoto, who observed the effects of positivity and negativity on water molecules. I was inspired by that.
Such pretty crystals
The word “Love” —
And the molecules
“You disgust me,”
Even look unhappy.
Water is necessary
For all of life,
And each living creature
To know love.
For Frank J. Tassone’s haikai challenge this week, we are commemorating this month’s full moon, which is traditionally known as the Sturgeon Moon.
A fish in the sky,
Imagination is swimming —
Have sweet dreams tonight
This week for Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, we are writing about our blog names. I used as inspiration the words Revived and Writer.
Like the new dawn each morning
Even in winter
Written in the sky:
Fluffy white clouds become sheep,
Daydreams of children
Inspired by a poem by Gabriela Mistral, for DVerse Poetics. Follow the link to read the original poem and many others.
And we go on and on and on,
Farther in time from where we started,
Farther in time from our
Farther in time but these moments
Stay with us,
In our minds
They go on and on and on
There is water which corresponds to your thirst.
There exists some food to satisfy your hunger.
There is some happiness to fill that glass
But it’s not found here.
There is a voice speaking to your subconscious,
Leading you to this place of fulfillment.
We are using our poetic voices for the DVerse quadrille this week.
