A BELATED NEW 2022 TO ALL

beer bubbles
a bittersweet taste
from yesterday

wild chrysanthemums
being withered
today more than yesterday

starry night —
yesterday, today, tomorrow
wild chrysanthemums
expand
and contracts

starry night —
in last year’s faraway field
withering chrysanthemums increase
its brightness

wild plum blossoms
today more than yesterday
shine in the forest
in the color of the moon

MUCKY-MUCK MONDAYS

@ madasahatter572 only…

each time I dip my brush
with sumi-ink scent
the interior of the universe
reveals itself

@ SENRYU CIRCLE…

all his words
coming back to me—
whiteout

a dab of butter
melting on the pancakes
winter sunny spot

coming back to me—
whiteout

@ VIRTUAL HAIKU…

Karla Decker’s Original Haiku…

one long ribbon
becomes a hundred
snip snip

inspired by Karla Decker’s Haiku…

snowflakes
breaking to pieces
long white ribbon

AND

winter moon
the night flight
of a crane-shaped ribbon

@ THE DAILY HAIKU…

Original Haiku by Annie Wilson…

trees pirouette
shedding leaves like last regrets –
we ride the storm

my inspired Haiku…

departing summer—
towards the nether world
a myriad of green leaves
ride upon the storm

drips and droplets
from a faucet

tens of thousands of green—
cutting blue sky

to see myself
becoming
a human shadow

departing October
it changes a color
for winter

deepening autumn—
a dandelion blooming
from far-away sky A

OR

deepening autumn—
lonely peonies blooming
under the blue sky B
