Partly Cloudy (13 November 2017)

This is a poem that I wrote for the “Ronovan Writes Haiku” weekly poetry writing challenge, for which two words are provided as prompts and synonyms are allowed. Haiku are, for purposes of the challenge, defined as 5-7-5 format…or writer’s choice, which often includes tanka, senryu, and, I expect, katauta and sedoka. Haven’t really kept track of all the variances. I first published this poem on my Quilted Poetry website: Partly Cloudy (Ronovan Writes Haiku).

alluring stars…
between dusk and daylight
so short a time
dreams drift past like clouds
some bring rain and others, snow

Fog and Ice (11, 12 November 2017)

NaHaiWriMo prompts for days 11 and 12: fog and ice

early dawn
fog above the river
veiled hills

ice along the shore
the tree twigs and branches
coated with rime

Blanket of light (10 November 2017)

night sky
fiery blanket of light
a sea of stars

broad enough to span a life
deep enough to hide within

Cold Winds (9 November 2017)

bare branches in November

 

geese and frigid winds
flow south…ragged array
their loud cries

Water Puddle (8 November 2017)

after rain
