dVerse — meet the bar — Late Summer in West Michigan


Kingfisher | Outdoor Alabama

kingfishers eat well
as ponds shrink and minnows swarm —
cicada’s sing


Duckweed, Pond, Green, Nature, Water, Teichplanze

duckweed and lotus
leaf blankets bob in the wind —
turtles sun on logs


Marsh Wren Perched on a Tall Grass' Photographic Print - Marc Moritsch |  AllPosters.com

wrens eat water oats
growing amongst late lilies –
ants climb sturdy stalks


Moonrise, Full Moon, Evening, Twilight, Mystical

sunset colors leave
moonrise against silhouettes –
river frog kerplops


morning cloudburst leaves
a rainbow over the trees
herons watch quick fish

Belted Kingfisher
Duckweed and water lily leaves
Wren perched on grass
Moonrise against silhouettes
Morning rainbow

  1. You chose the perfect images to complement your haiku, Lisa. I love the way you hint at the heat with the shrinking ponds. The turtles sunning on logs reminded me of the one and only time I visited New York and saw turtles in Central Park.

  2. Oh, sure; make me go back and go back again, trying to pay less attention to the fine (but borrowed) artwork and concentrate on the OUT-FRIGGIN-STANDING (Original) Haiku. Words win, Lisa. You nailed the prompt! Congrats.

  3. You really scored high with this quintet of poems, perfect in sequence, authentic, a tribute to the world of nature; and you found some perfect images to compliment your beauteous verses.
