This is shared with DVerse Open link, and I am also linking it to Heeding Haiku because I wrote this while trying to come up with a haiku about clouds.
Clouds highlight aqua sky :
Cirrus wisps whisper
Strings of gifts across
The broad expanse —
Under which imagination drifts
And daydreams dance.
I suppose I can rewrite this into a haiku!

Cirrus wisps whisper
Gifts of daytime reverie:
Clouds highlight wide sky
This tanka (or maybe it is a kyoka) responds to three prompts: mostly Heeding Haiku but also Angie Trafford’s writing Wednesday and JusJoJan day 30. Thank you to all the prompters!
Pummeled broken heart
Knocked down to the ground, knocked out
Gets back in the ring
An indomitable soul
Takes heart, fights again for love
The above photo is of some recent coloring that I did.
Linked to JusJoJan day 15, which is also one-liner Wednesday. However, this was inspired by Chevrefeuille’s prompt about sweet dreams and Poets and Storytellers United myth-placed. I hope it’s okay that I basically made up my own mythical place.
Candy tall as trees
A chocolate river flows
Sugar spun to clouds :
The substance of children’s dreams
A place with life always sweet

Here are two tanka poems on the theme of transformation, for Heeding Haiku
Evergreen bedecked with lights,
Ornament memorials —
A shelter for wrapped presents

Scarves adorn shiverers’ necks,
Apple cider held
In hands ready to receive,
Leaning into winter’s day
This week’s Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille has the theme of Halloween.
Pumpkins and ghosts gone
Now on to Christmas season —
Wait, where’s Thanksgiving?!
For this week’s “Heeding Haiku”, we are writing about stormy weather.
Denying the storm
An unwise course of action:
She lies in the eye.

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
This week, Chèvrefeuille invites us to write about friendship. Also, today happens to be the birthday of one of my dearest friends.
Sprung from daisy chains
And friendship bracelets, spending
Girlhood together —
Becoming women beside
One another, love still strong.
For the haiku prompts for both Frank J. Tassone’s and Heeding Haiku’s prompts about midsummer and the summer solstice.
Nighttime over more quickly
Dreaming short and sweet
The first haiku is in response to Heeding Haiku, which is about spiderwebs, and the haibun is for Frank’s fragrant breeze prompt.
Potential, patterned beauty
In a spider’s home
There was a two- or three-day heat wave, when even the breeze, warm as it was, brought little relief. It still feels like summer, but it’s more manageable now. Maybe I will spend time in the garden, among the flowers.
Feeling fragrant breeze
‘Midst summertime loveliness:
Happiness and peace
