still hope for peace (haiku – tanka)

Heaven smiles
tropical clouds burst short rains
palm tree shelters

fountain of  youth
like a desert goddess
futile mirage

Smokey jazz café
slow dance to Duke Ellington
hot summer night

Honeysuckle blooms
ancient road no longer bare
baby boomers flock
harmony hill
still hope for miracles

Our host, Chèvrefeuille, at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, gives us twelve (12) words (for every ”hour”) one word. The goal is to write haiku using the words as given in the clock wise way.

  1. Heaven 2. Clouds 3. Palm tree 4. Fountain 5. Goddess 6. Desert 7. Jazz cafe 8. Duke Ellington 9. Summer night 10. Honeysuckle 11. Ancient road 12. Hill

Our host gives us an example:
