5 haiku

Haiku prompted by the following quote:

[…] “We have lost contact with reality, the simplicity of life”. […] Paulo Coelho

These are separate…and in no particular order.

 

1.

illumination

of every street light and house

obscure the moonlight

 

2.

social networking

facebook friends and followers

don’t replace friendship

 

3.

live your own real life

there is no reality

on television

 

4.

don’t follow blindly

choose to see reality

knowledge empowers

 

5.

be here with me now

take off your shoes, stay awhile

enjoy the moments

 

~Melanie Thomason

moth

a moth flew in my tea

when i wasn’t looking

sometimes life is like that

new day

only the night bore witness

and today is a new day

ricochet

 

behind white blinds

drawn tight

angry words ricochet

some hit

some graze

out of view

of prying eyes

softly silent

narcissus-287300_1920

daffodils

silently trumpet

the new moon

that crept in

softly and unseen as a

cat on padded feet

White flower from the Chicago Botanic Garden

Another flower picture from Gigi and the resulting micropoetry from me 🙂

I see a little girl, named
Sunshine (or Sunny for short)
with her blonde hair
in pigtails
and big blue eyes
gleaming mischievously
as she plays hopscotch
in her starched
white dress

Flower…Chicago Botanic Garden (today)

This gorgeous flower from Gigi prompted a micro poem from me so I had to reblog 🙂

Here is the poem:

blossoms
blush prettily
as they unfold
their supple petals
to cradle wee fae folk
as they sleep

p

pausing,

palms pocketed

privately pondering

perplexing problems

petrifying past programming

prostrates
