Haiku - calmness of heavens


silvery sky
the calmness
of heavens


GENERAL CATEGORY:
-----

london blasts
the subways quiet
for the first time

blackout
family members try to speak
louder than the storm

lost on
the horizon
the ship

THEMED HAIKU - GOING ON HOLIDAY
--------

thai travel
he keeps saying 'thank you'
in thai

travel shock
finding he gets better exchange rate
than home

KIGO CATEGORY: 'HEAT'
------

first tokyo summer
unagi debuts on
my tongue


NEO CLASSICAL HAIKU:
------

autumn love letter
as the leaf falls, he bares
his whole self to her

(autumn)

SHINTAI HAIKU:
-----

the ballet dancer
twirls and swirls
turns my world around

upturned world
old lotuses bow
to new blooms

(old lotuses here mean withered lotuses)

VANGUARD HAIKU:
-----

beach kissing
our libido comes
in waves

folding crane
he wishes peace
a straighter matter

    In the desert to us...if the sky is silvery..shows a sign of rain...is a great blessing...and if its full of white cloud...its more blessing as the sky is beautified like flowers of different shape on the sky (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
