Haiku – Odd Couplings

This butterfly perched upon the seaweed of a tidal pool. The strange contrast of the butterfly, the seaweed and coral shards was strangely satisfying.This butterfly perched upon the seaweed of a tidal pool.

 A strange dalliance

A butterfly pines for love

Grieving on seaweed

…O…

The sun just rising on the horizon, the moon and a single star hovering above the makeshift tent we built on the desert island.

Afar, the moon grieves

Caught in hopeless attraction

Endlessly pining

…O…

Tears in the kitchen sink.

Tears in the kitchen sink.

Rainy Winter’s Day

I so pine for the sunshine

The clouds show their grief

  1. Oh Wow! What a trio! The first one makes me laugh – not sure why – butterflies and seaweed – !!! ????
    And that photo with the second haiku is absolutely stunningly beautiful – can’t stop looking at it – it is going into my list of favourites.

    • Thanks so very much! ☺ The butterfly on the seaweed was definitely odd. The second photo is also one of my favorite shots. I took it on a tiny island off the north west coast of Australia. Absolutely silent and serene in the cool morning air.

  2. I’m so glad you had your camera with you to capture that first photo. That is so unusual and makes for a beautiful photo to provide fodder for your haiku. I too pine for the sunshine if we have endless days of gloominess.
