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


Summer morning’s stars

glory a wet stage of green –

butterflies drink.


Summer moon now rests;

sun’s morning glories awake –

kingfisher giggles.


Cold summer rain pelts

their tightly furled blossoms,

our garden stroll will wait.


Summer’s living twine

holds a rainbow of deep bells –

hummingbird’s delight.


Summer morning

blossom feeds nature’s nation

emptied husk by night.

    Such a lovely variety of verse and a music video!
    May we always find enough delight in nature to ‘giggle’ at all of nature’s ‘bells’ and whistles 🙂

      🙂 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 🙂

        Almost like the cartoon of Woody the Woodpecker. Nice fit 🙂
