Haiku a Day #2 (Friday Night Poetry Corner #182)

Welcome everyone to another Friday Night Poetry Corner. I want to go back to reading more Haikus so this wonderful poet–Radiant Spleen fulfilled that need of the poetry corner. This is the “#2 day of a Haiku” and it focuses around a butterfly. In what way? You just need to read this brilliant haiku and post. Also, journey to this poet’s page and read more to their works. You won’t be disappointed if your tastes are similar to mines.

Radiant Spleen

An ecstasy of
fluttering butterfly wings
your kisses haunt me

Can I keep this up for 30 days?  We’ll see.   I feel a little like Evel Knievel trying to jump a motorcycle over a shark tank in Vegas. (Google it, youngsters.  His failure is on youtube for all to see.)  And to write a haiku in the fuller intent of the form (see Basho) and not just cram any old words into the 5-7-5 haiku format.  You can do that all day.  For example, my morning so far:

I got out of bed,
bathroom stuff, wrote for a bit,
did yoga, painted

And speaking of painting, to make the challenge more fun, I’m going to try to doodle-up a quick watercolor to go with them when I can.  It’s not part of the challenge I’m giving myself, and some days I know I’ll be lucky to just write a haiku…

A SIGH (Friday Night Poetry Corner #174)

 

 

Welcome, everyone to another Poetry Corner but this time, it’s on a Saturday. This poem here by a poet who goes by Tranquil Mountain is a beautiful work of writing. The name of it is called “A Sigh.” Please visit this poet’s page and read more of her works!

Tranquil Mountain

Look at the colorful scenery,
Smell the fresh greenery;
So many places to be,
In this open country.
Streets of tar;
A midnight star,
The ten-acre lake side;
Visual senses satisfied,
The good with the bad;
The happy and the sad,
Have you ever been a happy bride?
Experience that blissful ride?
After all of that energy high,
Just take a relief sigh;
Did you ever cry?
