Writing a poem a day during November 2017.
the breath of morning
tints eastern skies … as night’s hand
tucks away its stars

I went through a number of variations on this. Still not sure which one I like the best. This, which I mailed in for my poem-a-day group, or the adaptation I used for Ronovan Writes Haiku weekly challenge. Or perhaps one of the drafts that I deleted.
tiny snowflakes driftdown in slow motion…to groundtoo warm to hold them
Also, I made a stab at using the prompt for today from the NaHaiWriMo page: hurricane
hurricane of sights
cacophony of noises
chaos on chaos
worlds don’t end by fire or ice
but buried by falling stars
unfurl your wings
catch and sail the solar wind
from Venus to Earth
hide inside Luna’s shadow—
count the myriad divers stars

NaHaiWriMo prompt for November 2: solar wind.
I went with NaHaiWriMo’s prompt, again: solar wind. I remember reading a science fiction book (I think it was in Lightwing, by Tara Harper, 1992) that included traveling from asteroid to asteroid using foil sails powered by the solar winds of the star where their space station was placed in orbit. Sometimes I dream of it
cradled by blades of grass—
free of dew
one feather fell to earth
together the rest still fly

Not a novelist, I intend to write (at least) one poem a day during November 2017, during the 2017 #NaNoWriMo challenge.
a poppy for remembrance—
so long ago
his proposal accepted
his startled silence

The waning days of the Japanese Poetry workshop. Far too short!
I like this one a lot, and so decided to put it here, also. This is the last week of “Introduction to Japanese Poetry”, and I’m really enjoying it.

a common sight
air travel has appeal
but no snacks are served
