TJ’s Household Haiku

Nature reserve Perth
Nature reserve Perth
A quite walk by the lake near my work so strangely quite in the midst of a bustling city.

The trees shivering

Drop down collected raindrops

In sad reflections

Prompt words for this week:  “Shiver and rain”

A little belated but “C’est la vie mon amis!”

Bienvenue to you haiku enthusiasts out there. I took a moment between meeting for a stroll through the marshlands which lie strangely surrounded by a freeway and bustling suburbia and the silent scene was mightily soothing.

Many thanks to all those who converted the prompts from last week into a cornucopia of Haikuey goodness. Also well done to those who went for slight different Japanese poetry forms. Always good to “Mix it up a bit!”

As always, apologies in advance if I should be so inept as to miss anyone in the roundup. Always let me know and I will add you in ASAP.

Reena starts us off with a lovely haiku about wellness.

Mick E Talbot has two aquatic takes on the prompts both deliciously refreshing.
