Even though it is still mid-January, we are writing about the beginning of spring for Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille. The image for this post is taken from the original prompt.
Pinks, purple, waiting to bloom
Water to prepare
Also, for the weekly one-liner Wednesday and JusJoJan day 16:
Spring can begin to bloom with a kind word.
Tons of Ws for the alphabet haiku challenge from Abigail Gronway’s.
Wrangled wriggling worms
Wait, watery, while watching
Whitish whales weep
I wrote this poem a few days ago, in the arboretum by my university. It is inspired by Psalm 23 and shared with DVerse’s latest open link night. come visit us and read more poems!
Here are green pastures in which I sit,
Here are quiet waters, flowing —
Here is a slice of soul’s refreshment,
Here is Jesus, guiding wherever I’m going.
Now is a table, richly arrayed,
Even here, in a dark valley —
Now God is with me, shall I be afraid?
Even here, I can taste eternity.
For DVerse MTB, where we are playing with repetition. I actually wrote this poem back in July but never posted it until now.
The glass is half empty,
The glass is half full —
The glass is refillable.
Fill emptiness with song.
Even the rim of the glass
Can sing, with one
Unique and lovely note.
Fill the emptiness with song.
The glass is a God-made soul,
The glass has a voice
With strings which resonate,
Always filled with song.
At Real Toads, we are writing about Earth grief. I wrote this poem yesterday before seeing the prompt, and it fits the theme. Lately I have been worried about the earth, especially with all of the natural disasters happening.
Wildfires and hurricanes,
Floods and monsoons
Coming one after another
Too soon —
Is there nothing we can do
For the planet,
Is there a point of no return
And have we passed it?
For quadrille Monday, our word is “harbor”.
Sadness is this sea, and sometimes people can be
A temporary anchor; but demons of the deep
Keep waiting for me. There seems to be
No welcoming space, no safe harbor here,
On this maritime, Odyssey-like, bold, depth untold
Journey through the fathomless mind.
For the alphabet haiku challenge: letter J.
