The Daily Haiku

A world of five - seven - five. At one time daily, now kind of sporadic.

Feathered visitors
Resting at the little pond
Honking their warning

Water rushed through the canal
Like a mini-flood

With five by seven by five

Current theme: J is for Jack-o-Lantern

The glowing carved face
Greeting the ghouls and goblins
A trick or a treat?

Current theme: Elemental

Glowing ember dawn
Twisting dance within the pyre
Hunger of this fire

Foundation solid
Within the forests we roam
And mountains of stone

Atmospheric haze
The leaves blowing everywhere
Movements of the air

Depths of the ocean
Awaken currents in me
This endless blue sea

The Fall Equinox
Midway between Solstices
Equal day and night

Hand that makes the mark
Extending the flowing Qi

My ankles became a feast
Time to get the spray

Of my parent's place

Horizons of rain

Three thousand souls lost

Ravages of time?
