The Daily Haiku

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

Current theme: E is for Eumenides (Greek Mythology)

For ABC Wednesday

The Eumenides
Death empowered by Justice
Seek retribution

Natural Order
Enforcers of Nature's law
The way things should be

Yet also known as
The frightening Erinyes
Vengence incarnate

Stalk across the world
Fury from deceit, murder
Avenge the fallen

Current theme: D is for Dionysus (Greek Mythology)

For ABC Wednesday

Revelry abounds
Ritualistic madness
Through hedonism

Is it really bad?
To unfetter inhibition
Now free of worry

The God of Wine calls
Drop your guard and run wild

Frenzied mind twists
Freedom devolves to madness
Chaos of the heart

Current theme: C is for Cernunnos (Celtic Mythology)

For ABC Wednesday

The Great Horned One waits
Slumbering in deep shadows
Restless and dreaming

Beneath an ancient Oak
The Lord of the Underworld
Reaches from earth to sky

In forests and glades
Enforce the natural order
Sky, stars, and seasons

Confused with the Greek Pan
No madness or violence here
Just Nature's movement

Seeker of balance
Far beyond good and evil
Spirit of the land

Symbol of the Stag
God of animals and the hunt
Crown of Forest Green
