holiday dreams (troiku) RonavanWrites Haiku – slow-burn

(c) Clr ’18

 
Hot mug of cocoa 
Sitting before a crackling fire 
Eyelids slowly close 
 
Hot mug of cocoa 
Memories of long ago 
Scents of childhood 
 
Sitting before a crackling fire 
Birch logs burning ever slowly 
Embers glow 
 
Eyelids slowly close 
Dreaming of ol’ saint Nic 
Sleigh bells tin-a-ling

life is messy (haiga)

At Carpe Diem Sparkling Stars, our inspirational haiku by Shiki:

when I looked back,
the man who passed
was lost in the mist © Masaoka Shiki

wakeful moments
just mistaken reveries
rolling into days

day after day
lost in a sea of fog
life is messy

old woman
chips away at what was home
lost in whiteout

sous la nuit
des étoiles
ce soir, sont engagés
pour s’aimer toujours

rendevous
at café terrasse
underneath
the night stars
that night, they made their promise
forever to love.

the sweet perfume of autumn
brings ecstasy

whispering grace,
mystic fields
