Theme Week Haiku


Starling on a line

calls for his tribe

they fly as one

Carpe Diem’s theme week is focusing on 

Theme Week

Here are some examples:

The crow has flown away:
swaying in the evening sun,
a leafless tree.

Over the wintry
forest, winds howl in rage
with no leaves to blow.

kare eda ni karasu no tomarikeri aki no kure

on a bare branch

a crow has stopped
autumn dusk

© Basho (Tr. Stephen Wolfe)

mysterious –
leaves falling year after year
without notice

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. Carop this is a lovely haiku, which echoes those classic ones by the masters and Chev, simple, yet real, and so close to nature, it makes me want the same!
    Nice of you to come back, as I miss the ‘regulars’ – maybe the perfect haiku for your return!
