Carpe Diem’s Crossroads Haiku 031518

Solitude and sand
mix with salty ocean breeze –
Winter dreams of spring

– Written for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai’s Crossroads haiku. The object is to fuse two haiku together to form a new creation. The two original poems and explanation are here.

Seasons

Seasons come and go
Downpours of rain, then ice and snow
Sunshiney days and a cool evening breeze
Budding flowers and leaves falling from trees
Time passes on while nature puts on a show

When Blood Ceases to Flow

When Blood Ceases to Flow

Fly away my angel.
Be forever young.
My longing will linger into eternity,
But you are at peace.

Your laugh lives always on the warm breeze,
But I am embraced by the night,
A ghost with no heartbeat,
A prisoner without life,
Yet I cannot die.

Summer’s End

Upon the breeze,
The scent of rain, refreshing, new.
Upon the breeze,
Sounds of lost laughter stir the trees.
I just notice something else too.
Summer storm brings the scent of you,
Upon the breeze.

Artwork

The sun shines through the leaves and makes its way to my window. The breeze moves branches and clouds casting playful shadows on the windowpane. I watch through blinds, safe from the heat, and I appreciate innovative invention. My window is a frame holding the artwork of nature for my enjoyment.
