Luxembourg Haiku

Luxembourg Haiku

Spring breezes 

poppies sing their red dance

how tall they grow

A Luxembourg poetess offers inspiration today along with Cheverfeuille.

Break my branches

saw me into bits
the birds will still sing in my roots

in the garden, the wind
makes my late father’s washed pants

nursing their faded past –
weary autumn gardens

ripe wheat
embraced by the tree of life –
I bake my first bread

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. Ah makes sense 🙂 Hey, I’m exploring the idea of giving oneself grace and space and wondered if you wanted to contribute a quote or poem on what that means to you. I’ll bet you have a wonderful outlook on it. I’m hoping we can all learn something from this or just buoy each other up 🙂

      2. Anyway you wish. You can comment on any of my grace and space posts or you can just reply here. If you want to do a poem, post it on your site and drop the link into a comment so I can find it. 🙂 Do mention in your post that you’re giving yourself grace and space. maybe one of your readers will take that idea to heart and stop their negative self-talk. 🙂

  1. i love that, poppies sing their red dance. btw, i saw video of poppy plants in afghanistan used for opium. they had a large bulb which could be lanced or scraped for a white liquid which would be the base opium product.
