HAIKU VERSUS RHYTHM AND RHYME

My favourite pastime:
crafting poetry in rhyme
but not so this time

Ordered by Debbie:
from your comfy box break free
haiku it will be

Debbie, what's with you
to rhythm and rhyme I'm true
I loathe haiku

I'll stay in my sphere
sans rhythm poetry's queer
Oops! I rhymed in here

A Delicate Balance

Breathless and beguiled
 Nature blankets my lone dreams
   Swallowing me whole

seasonal guests

plucked from frozen hills

evergreen scents fill our homes...

     lights flicker with joy

Honking Recedes

honking recedes-- last shadows of geese bend on the frost

Erosion (haiku)

Gullies scar brown earth
     Hurricanes bring erosion
          Of both soil and lives

Facedown

.






                                                facedown on the floor
                                                the broken porcelain's moon —
                                                for Shinto's sake

Haiku 40 till Haiku 47 beneath the sakura tree

cherry blossoms drift upon the white casket -a fading pink hue --- she scatters his ashes where cherry blossoms bloom -life after life ---- early miscarriage -cherry blossoms wither before leaves bloom - - - my unborn child -cherry blossoms wither too soon - - - cherry blossoms in hues of pink -our baby girl - - - first cherry falls upon melting snowflakes -Spring's blossom --- cherry blossom -i lick fresh sweetness from his lips --- beneath the sakura tree i shape a heart of petals -without you Not for the contest but tnks Susan and friends you are an inspiration
