still...the mid-day sun
a safe way of feeling
leaves now gone
The illustrated version, which I also posted this past Sunday:
blame the PEOTUS!
the pace at which I eat
--the weight of the wishes
on each branch
oooo of the wind
always in the background
user requests faux news rag
"your papers too lefty"
top of the dead pine
a squirrel's nest

This final one seems ominous. Is that really true about the news requests? I like 'the giving tree' very much, Diane!ReplyDelete
Yes, I did get a request from an older man who told me we had lefty papers.Delete
I've been looking forward to your first weekly roundup, Diane! My favorites of these are Dec 2, 3 (awwww!) and 5. Hopefully I can learn by osmosis! It's been fun immersing myself for a few minutes each morning and evening trying to come up with haiku to post daily. For every 5 attempts, I might get one that I'm relatively happy with.ReplyDelete
You're doing great, Michelle. I've posted many a haiku sticky with a decidedly inferior haiku only because I needed a haiku in a hurry! The important thing is to recognize that what I've posted isn't up to snuff.Delete
Oh, the weight of our wishes on each haiku. I love being a part of this creative community. Write on!ReplyDelete
Love the giving tree haiku. I wasn't paying attention to the challenge, but it may help me, as well. Great idea and right up your alley!ReplyDelete
Warm cats, hot noodles . . . I'm feeling better already. xoxoReplyDelete
