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

TWISTED TUESDAYS

@ madasahatter572 only…

like a shining sun
wild chrysanthemums
in a vase

@ BUDS OF HAIKU…

Golden Retriever
passes slowly
lingering summer heat

@ VIRTUAL HAIKU…

snowflakes
a glimpse
of moths

@ HAIKU NUGGETS…

prompt- sunset

where the Golden Retriever
becomes sleepy
winter sunset

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

@ BUDS OF HAIKU…

a dab of butter
melting on the pancakes
winter sunny spot

@ SENRYU & KYOKA…

all his words
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

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL

Taking a moment or two to wish everyone; family, friends, beloved followers and new readers…to wish all of you a Safe and Happy 2021 Holiday. Here a few Haiku to celebrate this wintry occasion…

snowflakes
they fall from
giggling scissors

avalanche
the sounds
of gift paper falling

accumulating snow
entries in this diary
day after day

snowfall
the falling pages
of this year’s diary

a lone moon rolls down
like a blank paper
