frozen

snow like petals
line the path to twilight-
a crystal like sky

~

polished-
the mirror reflects again
the moon at night’s door

Written in consideration of Carpe Diem Encore # 15

This is to be counted as Poem # 6 for my 30 Days, 30 Poems Challenge. I am really tired and sleep deprived; I am thus not able to write a verse poem. Though these two haiku took a lot of my energy as well.

Green

a bud reaches out

conjured by the smoke whirls-

day light blows off

.

green tunnel of trees-

a boy from a passing bus

plucks a specked leaf

.

An inactive spell has infiltrated my mind and my senses nowadays. And here I wrote what I saw in a memory or a dream, when it arrived at my door of current thought.

For Carpe Diem # 507 and the upcoming prompt of Heeding Haiku With HA on Wedbesday, where I talk about improvising our haiku by taking care of certain details while writing. Do not forget to visit Mind Love Misery’s Menagerie for a variety of writing prompts throughout the week,

Artemis

huntress

beneath the fiery moon

with a nightly sheen

~

moon goddess

sister of the sun god

ruling the sky

~

ready with her bow

ethereal goddess shoots-

echoes the cry of prey

~

at Ephesus

the virgin lady once stood

with her huntress gaze

For Carpe Diem # 330.

October

hush October wind

gently blow away the leaves

under misty sun

~

bereft of leaves

fruit of lives would be lost

cackling crow calls

~

plucking death away

one leaf and then the next

cleansing autumn wind

.

* For Carpe Diem Distillation # 4 where we are prompted to write haiku by distilling the poem, October, by Robert Frost.
