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.
Sarah has us welling up here. Lovely.
