MLMM –Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, February 27 2019 Morning Glory

Chevrefeuille is hosting Heeding Haiku today and says:

This week I have a nice theme for you to create your haiku or haibun with … Morning Glory …

Create your haiku or haibun following the classical rules (5-7-5 syllables; seasonword; cutting word; deeper meaning; interchangeable 1st and 3rd line; a moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water). Your haibun may have a maximum of 150 words

i.

Summer morning’s stars

glory a wet stage of green –

butterflies drink.

ii.

Summer moon now rests;

sun’s morning glories awake –

kingfisher giggles.

iii.

Cold summer rain pelts

their tightly furled blossoms,

our garden stroll will wait.

iv.

Summer’s living twine

holds a rainbow of deep bells –

hummingbird’s delight.

v.

Summer morning

blossom feeds nature’s nation

emptied husk by night.

  1. 🙂 thank you very much, Jules! last night I went looking for a definition of “cutting words” and it helped. the closest i came to the insane sound of a kingfisher was a giggle 🙂
