Daily Moments – speechless (haiga) July 31 & August 1, 2017

I just noticed this prompt at Carpe Diem #1228 sunset (CD Imagination)   today and decided to include my “daily moments”  haiga at work yesterday, which just happened to be written July 31st.   


During a long counselling call, I looked out the window and noticed the sunset…I could not run up on the roof for a short break so I took a photo from my I-Phone …

Image may contain: sky and text

of a fading sky
nature’s last act


Today, looking at this photo again, my muse whispered her impressions…

brush strokes
with raging passion
on blazing sky
on tawny seas



the river mourns (troibun)


She gifted me on her very own birthday! Giving me a perfect day, sunshine and precious company, what better way to end it with this new tradition…

by the rapids
beating to a yearning heart
the river roars

by the rapids
waves pouring stories
dancing eagerly

beating to a yearning heart
embracing and comforting
Mother Nature knows

the river roars
rumbling outbursts
calming release

Hope mixed with despair
from my bedroom window
dreams beneath the snow

hope mixed with despair
buried under heavy layers
winter laughs at me

from my bedroom window
lull of rumbling snow ploughs
drifting off to sleep

dreams beneath the snow
fleeting thoughts of blossoms
tulips pierce the snow


butterfly moment (troiku – haiga)



sometimes I wish
I was a butterfly
one brief moment

sometimes I wish
one heartfelt scene
and, time would stop

I was a butterfly
one sweet moment
forever prised

one brief moment
seals the heart



Troiku is a new form of haiku created by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai
