Micropoetry Month: Nov 2017: #20

Micropoetry MonthWhile I prefer to break away from the 5-7-5 scheme and other traditional haiku rules, I still think haiku or senryu (in its modern avatar) should seize the essence of a moment anchored in the close observation of nature. This is truly the hardest form of poetry to get right- to be simple yet profound, layered yet obvious, beautiful yet utterly truthful.


contrary to the summer rain
this endless waiting


pleated morning
she hides my unfinished dreams
in her folds


mangled sky
together we watchΒ 
orange tulips filling with rain

  1. shadow of a hawk
    floats on the lawn and lane –
    flies before the wind

    I saw this today and the haiku popped into my head. I actually think because of its connection to nature and the seasons and its encapsulating a moment in time that this is one of the easiest of forms. Thanks for letting us post here. It is good to finally post one for your Microppoetry month.
