Japanese poetry has always fascinated me. I literally
slave over my haiku, most times I hate what I write..
After a lot of mind bashing, a little bit of a semblance of
haiku comes out, if I dare to call it that..
Today, I was delighted to find comments on my short poems
posted yesterday and the day before and the day before.
These comments are nothing but the best haiku I ever read on WP.
Cheers to our very own Haiku Master, Mick E Talbot
The first poem is mine and the one below is the haiku of Mick.
the night meditates-
in the seclusion of my mind
I dream of Adonis.
I dream of Venus
blinding beauty reaching out
Goddess of love.
The moon rises
The moon rises through
tall trees guard night blossoms
I sit in the darkness
listening to the sound
watch the moon tonight
earth shadow shakes it down
a snow moon myth.
A cold february sky
a cold february sky
I grieve into the
winter still holds the reigns
spring birds begging.
my window to the sky
a frame of heaven-
sky walking the universe
suspended in peace..
more peaceful than earth
distant galaxies who knows
