Haikai Challenge #149: Waterfall (taki)

Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, Grand Rapids, MI, February 2020
Mid-winter’s silver
flows over rocks, under ice;
gravity-compelled,
defying temperature,
waterfall tinkles in snow.

 

It is in the 80’s here in MI. Looking for pictures of waterfalls, I came across the photo taken mid-winter and thought oh my, wouldn’t it be nice to cool off there right now. It is mid-winter in the Southern Hemisphere, so I hope this is appropriate for the prompt.

Write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, Senryu, haibun, Tanka, Haiga, renga, etc) that alludes to waterfall (taki)

  1. You reminded me of one winter… not long ago where the creek actually froze over – I didn’t chance walking across it, though my neighbor and his dog did!

    Here’s cheer to cooling thoughts. Our outside reading… 101 F at around 3:30p!

    1. Yes, there are always the brave ones walking on frozen bodies of water and chancing they don’t fall through. They even drive on the lake and take snowmobiles onto it. No thanks.
      Your mid-winter temp is 101F????? Oh dear.

            1. Oh I hope so also. This heat is oppressive. I love the sunshine though. I filled the bird bath yesterday, and today when I went out there it was almost empty. First time that happened in just a day.

        1. My rings are all silver. I don’t like gold and nickel makes me break out. Never wear my rings in the house unless visitors come over, which is never these days. I stopped wearing earrings many moons ago. I do wear necklaces.
