A still sea –
But beyond the reef
Light dances.

Five pm –

I emerge into sunlight

And cherry blossom.

Caught in the bare tree,

The sun glares through prison bars.

I walk – set it free.

For Carpe Diem: Morning prayers. I wrote this haiku back in January but I’m giving it a second outing because it seems to fit nicely with this prompt. The task was to write a haiku in the style of this one by Kala Ramesh:

morning prayers
the rising sun between
my hands

One little cloud –

Daring to block out

The entire sun.

sea foam

Clouds swirl in sea foam,

Drops of sunshine ride the waves,

Heaven visits earth.

For Carpe Diem: There is Buddha


The lagoon gathers

Day’s dying light, reluctant

To let it go.

For Carpe Diem: Light


With setting sun,

We pause on the world’s edge,

For Carpe Diem: Reflection


Sunlight on the waves –

A miniature galaxy

Of fleeting stars.

Written for Carpe Diem: karumi


Sun touches the old, flint wall,

First time this year.

Written for Carpe Diem on the theme of wabi-sabi and for Writing 201‘s prompt, “journey”.

Glimpsed through dark trees,

Sun sparkles on water –

A poem half formed.

(This was inspired partly by the Carpe Diem prompt, Monet’s Poplars on the Epte, and partly by the next day’s prompt, comparison. But mainly I was thinking of the view of the sea through the holm oaks and pine trees a mile or so from my house.)
