Morning haiku


Recommended Posts

#135

 

April sunrise wakes

poppy field from slumber

gold greets my eyes

 

#134

 

morning breeze

floats off the Pacific

to moisten my cheek

 

#133

 

in dawn’s stillness

flutter of butterfly wings

is the only sound

Hi Tink,

 

It's wonderful to have haiku posted here and three is a bonus!

 

The reflective tone of the first is magical! I love the echoing rhyme in "flutter" and "butterfly". There's a lovely sensuous note in the second haiku:

 

"... moisten my cheek"

 

And the final haiku has drama in the colours you evoke:

 

"gold" and "poppy" - one imagines crimson heads.

 

 

Thank you for a great haiku moment and more.

Welcome back, Tinker! I enjoyed these haikus, especially the part about the morning breeze, the reference to the Pacific, and where you write gold greets my eyes.
