…having a knack…

does having a knack
mean I am full of myself ?
drawn page taunt with words…

mirroring bits of myself
most of which are left unread

9.15 harvest haiku
1
neck disease; onions
they have – a light harvest
from the field this year
2
neighbors’ tomatoes
once abundant, now have rot
snails enjoy last bites
3
odd celeriac
is a late harvest – and it
is like a turnip

9.14 cache of crows

how unfortunate
for a cache of crows to be
known as a ‘murder’

and yet by some other folk
are treated with due respect

aki no kure karasu mo nakade tori keri

an autumn evening;
without a cry,
a crow passes

crthe moon reflects in the pond
this autumn evening – deep silence
the rustling of leaves

Cheverfeuile says: It’s a kind of word-whirl. Use (the word) ‘mirror’ for line one (1) and ‘leaves’ for line two (2) and so on. If you follow the words clockwise then you can compose four new haiku.
This is the list: 1. mirror, 2. leaves, 3. rain, 4. butterfly, 5. chrysanthemum, 6. breeze, 7. stars, 8. clouds, 9. ocean, 10. daisies, 11. cow shed, 12. secret

1
mirror in puddles
fallen leaves compete with sky
more rain predicted
2
butterfly searches -
finds spider chrysanthemum
with a helpful breeze
3
September stars share
the night sky with clouds hanging
above the ocean
4
daisies on the farm
grow by the cow shed and barn -
secret rendezvous

Symbolism associated with the daisy flower are purity, innocence, loyal love,
beauty, patience and simplicity. Daisies are believed to be more than 4,000
years old. Hairpins decorated with daisies were found during the excavation
of the Minoan Palace on the Island of Crete. Further back, Egyptian ceramics
were decorated with daisies.

Troiku : the morning paper

http://chevrefeuillescarpediem.blogspot.com/2014/09/carpe-diem-559-morning-dew.html

CD 559-morning-dew

Troiku is a haiku-form which Chèvrefeuille created several years
ago and it looks similar with the Russian Troika, a three horse sleigh.
The Sleigh is a haiku and with every line of that haiku, a new haiku
starts as being the three horses (lines) of the original haiku.

Troiku

the morning paper

the morning paper
in a plastic bag, lands on
the dawn of grasses

1
the morning paper
due to the news is often
left folded, unread

2
in a plastic bag
covered with September sighs
wrapped in sensation

3
the dawn of grasses
full of dew, the birds look for
refreshment and worms

one year old bends…

http://chevrefeuillescarpediem.blogspot.com/2014/09/carpe-diem-creatures-4.html

one year old bends…

one year old bends down
to pick up a dry leaf; finds
flutter of brown moth

©JP/davh

frogs jump in -
the sound of rain far away
thunder and lightning

© Chèvrefeuille

Twilight
neither night nor day
frogs and bats
