criss cross patterns/ weave thru blueness/ of morning sky/ crosshatch of contrails
frost on windows/ clouds in the blue autumn sky/ cream in my morning tea
melting / heavy white frost / drips from bleak branches/ despairing of the sun
all that can be seen / fog of her breath /her bright eyes /whitetail in moonlight
face, just turned/ three quarter profile / smiling to the stars/ gibbous moon
This is so very beautiful!
Blessings ~ Wendy
Hi. I also like the short lines and the connectedness of each line to the next. Jane
Amazing frost painting photo, and I love your words. So finely woven together. Love a whitetail in profile!
Very beautiful nature images & your photo looks like an abstract painting 🙂
Great choice for you haiku sentences – nature and poetry in short form..lovely
This is really pretty, I love it. 🙂
Very close to authentic haiku – completely natural, and beautifully wrought.
Never tried cream in my morning tea – but sounds delightful – as are your words.
Lovely, closer to haiku because of the theme ~ That last one is just fitting when I looked outside my window ~
Lovely – is the photo of a frosted windshield?
Hi Lorri – Its actually the roof of my car! Took that several years ago and have never seen it frost like that again – looked like ostrich feathers – very cool – pardon the pun 🙂 K
Wow, five beauties here, Kathleen; at first seemed like actual haiku masquerading as American non-haiku, but more than that; it shows your wonderful ability to work within form, and how you took the prompt outside the lines. I liked sentence/haiku #2 best.
oo the comparison to the cream in your tea is very cool in the first one…ha. the fog and white tail one is very cool as well…nicely done on the visuals…
These are very beautiful – and very relatable. The image is also stunning.
crosshatch of contrails… wonderful.
frost on windows/ clouds in the blue autumn sky/ cream in my morning tea…. oh that is my fav one…love the contrasts….color…the crisp frost…the soft clouds and the cream….fabulous
Beautiful lines, Kathleen! All very evocative. I particularly like “frost on windows/ clouds in the blue autumn sky/ cream in my morning tea”.
These are wonderful pieces. It shows you have the skill to condense.. and whitetail the moonlight is a haiku masterpiece.
Beautiful writing, Kathleen. Each of the sentences! My favorite is definitely the one about the ‘whitetail’ in moonlight. We have whitetails around here, very active in the early eve, and your poem resonated true with me.
Dear Kathleen, This is wonderful, and I love how you created the lines and form of your poem. Ellen
