30 Haikus in 30 Days: 11-14


The 2014 November PAD Chapbook Challenge continues, as does my personal challenge of writing 30 Haikus in 30 Days.

My haiku muse has been on fire over the last few days. For most prompts, I’m writing more than one poem, which is not at all what I expected when I decided to take on both challenges. Here’s a selection of what I’ve written …

November 11, 2014
Prompt: Two for Tuesday – 1. Write a timely poem. 2. Write a timeless poem.

I. Timely

Light winter flurries,
settle on summer’s last bloom
Pink withers away

II. Timeless

First witness to time
grains of sand; a velvet sky
The stars do not lie

November 12, 2014
Prompt: Write a poem for and/or about something that cannot be seen.

Before a storm roars
water stills like polished stone
Silence takes a breath

November 13, 2014
Prompt: Optional

Flying through wild skies
riptide gales, wings hold steady
Grace is optional

November 14, 2014
Prompt: Follow

Shadows will follow
the sun’s trek across the sky
Lithe calligraphy
