oh, you do not hop

your ears, they do not listen

poor Easter bunny

your nose does not twitch

sadly you are not fuzzy

poor Easter bunny

yummy chocolate

ears will be the first to go

poor Easter bunny!

evergreen~haiku

winter’s perfect scene

snow falls on an evergreen-

natural flocking

adieu to you and you and you…

She had come to a decision

It was time for a fresh start

With only promise in her heart

she bid farewell to them all

in celebration of herself

once white~ haiku

freshly fallen snow

turns grey under careless feet-

as a broken heart

a band of gold around your finger

shouldn’t feel like bracelets made of steel

you should feel his arm around your shoulders

not his hands around your throat

that is not love

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

Chloris

la-faune-et-la-flore-mark-harless-fb

– picture by Mark Harless

 

behold fair Chloris

the Greek goddess of flowers,

growth, transformation

she drinks deeply of

the all-nurturing, western

stream of Okeanos

before returning

to happily dance and sing

in Elysian Fields

fallen

pumpkin

poplar leaf

it drifts lazily

landing beneath the tree

fallen

scarlet

maple leaf

it glides elegantly

to the forest floor

fallen

marigold

hickory leaf

it floats gracefully

to rest with me

fallen
