reflecting on may flowers (troibun


spreading  beauty
nature bows in honour
honeysuckles bloom

Thanking our host and mentor, Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai  for teaching and inspiring us to not only write haiku or other forms of Japanese poetry (waka) but to grow in the experience…as a good parent  he nurtures and breathes harmony and enlightenment among the family.


a lone flower
yearns to rise in splendour
field of sunflowers

a lone flower
searching for the sun
at one with nature

yearns to rise in splendour
embroidering each petal
one thread at a time

field of sunflowers
seventeen syllables
forming corolla

    1. Thank you for your kind words…wanting to write like this is such a beautiful compliment.

      Then come and join CarpeDiemHaikuKai you learn at your own pace and by seeing other poetry. Everyone is very supportive and caring. If you can’t come every day…you come when you are inspired:) no pressure Our host, Chèvrefeuille (which means honeysuckle in French) is so dedicated and caring. Tournesol (by the way means, sunflower, in French)
