Seduction In Spring - A Haiku Garland

Cherry Blossoms Bloom Resplendently dressed in Pink Seducing the Spring Glory unfolding They release their sweet fragrance Pirouette and twirl Music from the breeze With limbs so graceful swaying Blushing and bowing Time of renewal A fleeting symbol of life In two weeks farewell Ethereal Muse Celebration of nature Next spring awaits you
Author's Note: I hope that in this set of Haiku, I've managed to convey the traditional importance of the Cherry Blossom Season in Japan. Cherry blossoms are the symbolic flower of the spring, a time of renewal and the fleeting nature of life. Their life span is very short. After their beauty peaks around two weeks, the blossoms start to fall. I liken these flowers to the beautiful Heavenly elusive Muses, the daughters of Zeus. The awesomeness of the natural beauty of Japan is continued in the my poem and arrangement - 'A Rose by any other name ---'

Explosion of light
Pooled the bay with reds and gold
Catching fishermen.

Random Thoughts *22* Double Haiku to Double Senryu

Natures fist, such bliss
climb the weeping willow tree!
so inspiring

Natures kiss, wet lips
clouds surround, I imagine.
Poetry firing.

We embrace, she twists
grooving to R&B tones.
Dancing, dry humping.

Her elegant grace,
amazing and entrancing.
Just look at her face...

Katherine Moore Haiku

Katherine Moore Haiku

what happened to us
we may never know when or why
or how to translate

so what should we do
to relieve all of our pain
and suffer no more

seems so pure and plain
our answer just did appear
we wish you were here

when you leave again
better be sure to prepare
us so can survive

Five Haiku Pansy Poems

color, dance, imagery, inspirational, poetry, wind, word play,

In my pansy patch 
The flower petals surround
Cherub expressions!

The pansy petals 
Edge their small faces in bonnets
Framing heads so well

Flower pansy dresses 
My petal faeries wear well
‘Show-offs’ with such airs!

My faerie pansies
Bow and bend to the winds song
Under the sky blue!

Butterfly sets down
Over the pansy’s  to draw
Syrup in the cup!

A Round Robin Haiku Special

early bird special
red robins melcholy
beneath window sill

afternoon delight
a butterfly fluttering 
amidst garden floor

the evening deluxe
sun bids the day well ado 
hooting escalates

midnight  oasis
aqua velvet kisses - and
one dozen roses
