10.31 …shifting…

sky pages
constellations stories
shifting stars

time zones
morning rises; dusk lengthens
shifting time,

bird wing
tree leaf falls
candle flames dance

cotton contrails
metal birds defy gravity
over the plains

low clouds
mystify the horizon
hides the deer

10.30 mischief made

a haibun: mischief made

breaking tradition
never was a strong one
of counting candles

just another day
gaining ground over the hill
happy with right now

cupcake awaits
one before, another after
dinner out

maybe Saturday
I’ll pick up something for me
today is Thursday

10.29 …mooning…

silent moon
sleepers breathe
dawn disperses dreams

waxing moon
bone china bowl
breath cools soup

full moon
dinner plate
on sky’s table

waning moon
silver crescent
morning croissant

noisy moon
declarative geese
migrate

10.28 …guided…

http://chevrefeuillescarpediem.blogspot.com/2014/10/carpe-diem-592-nights-of-summer-june.html

10.28 …guided…

warm puddles of rain
fireworks and concert ends
early, we held hands

one son on each side of her
mother guided them homeward

early from the show
that year after dancing to
patriotic tunes

10.27 (two prompts) …only man…

10.27 …only man…

harvest myth
sacrifice needed
Mother asks for fruit

only man demanded blood
which destroyed the dirt

nothing grew
where life was spilled
harvest myth

10.25 …the beginning…

http://chevrefeuillescarpediem.blogspot.com/2014/10/carpe-diem-589-zentsu-ji-february-march.html

10.25 …the beginning…

swept in a pile
willow, chestnut, maple, oak
child sees fallen leaves

yet does not understand death;
the beginning of her life

she repeats ‘surprise’
in the joy of her playing
crushing, tossing; leaves
