Haiku #70 Lift Your Voices in Song (1-7)


We sing your praises
For this pink and purple day
Of sky water sand (1)

We thank you Father
For this pink and lilac day
With grand purple sands (2)

Pink and lilac haze
A perfect day for lovers
Mystic and profound (3)

A day of days
In sky of pink lilaz haze
Horizon mimics (4)

Pink and lilac day
Where we stand on purple sand
Edged in pink waters (5)

Oh mystic pink day
Your sky in brilliant array
How grand purple sand (6)

Pink and lilac haze
Profound truth another day
Pink water purple sand (7)

    Wow, Dorothy, this is beautiful. I wondered whether these were really meant to stand alone at first, but even with all the repeated phrases, Lift Your Voices in Song was highly enjoyable. Besides, I know the feeling! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
