sizzling skillet pops

coffee and bacon mingle

Sun lights morning smiles

Nice! :bow:

 

I'd give it a like but I'm out. Me thinks I need to squirrel some likes away for a rainy day.

Falling leaves on water

drift until they sink below.

The deep is quiet.

 

 

Cool amethyst sky.

Evening star burns warm and bright

falling to the sea.

 

 

Bare feet touch the Earth.

Dew filled grass caresses them.

My roots spreading deep.

If I had five likes

Instead of maybe seven

Five must then suffice

 

 

So sorry Juthro

While outside moving my logs

I rewrote line three

 

 

Taking back your like

Would be understandable

No fair editing

For me a haiku is trying to capture the essence of a single moment (as impossible as that is). That pure thing that is separate from time but where there is still some perception of awareness. It always reminds me of the way I perceived things when I was a small child. The dust in the sunbeam, a speck of something in the dark corner, white mountain peaks barely visible in the distance. That's just me though. Good thing about a haiku is it can be anything. The only rule, that I know of, is the 5, 7, 5.

I feel your pain, Dial8.  Or rather I feel my own....

 

Stabbing mussel spasms
Dislocated vertebra
No relief in sight
