Timelessness - (Haiku) - Poem by Alison Cassidy

a single white cloud
moving imperceptibly
across a blue sky

    Very nice Alison

    Ummm got me thinking now, how about another take on this

    Fleece the snow-draped sheet
    Casts across an ocean deep
    Fly’s to who knows where

    Love duncan X

    I see that white cloud moves across the blue sky and I feel the softness of a child's smile. (Report)Reply

    Hi, Allie! This scene in this haiku is so pleasant, and I really enjoyed the title choice, very thought provoking. Time does seem to stand still as we absorb the wonders of nature. Beautiful job! Take care, Beth (Report)Reply

    Allie, what a lovely Serene picture you paint for a Sunday morning over hear in England when all they can forecast is rain. Top marks and thanks for waking my morning with a smile my friend.

    The essence of time and life captured in a crystal bowl. I would never have thought that such a profound truth could be captured in such simplicity. Will make a reader wonder: 'why didn't I think of it' but then again, that is poetry. Many people look at something and think that it is prosaic but poets such as you come forward with a totally different perception

    You can be absolutely devastating.

    Lots of love and best wishes...

    Which makes me wonder........is that cloud moving across the sky, or is the earth revolving? That just popped in as I was picturing this in my mind's eye. What do you think? Sweet haiku, Allie.
    Hugs,
    Linda :) xxx
