Rustling of Bamboo

Another haiku about Bamboo.


rustling of bamboo
the cool summer breeze -
a skylark's song

The Old Church

Not so very long ago I was on a holiday in Spain. Went to walk and ran into an nice old church. I didn't make  a photograph, but now after such a long time I wrote a haiku about an Old Church.

in the old church
the scent of incense
I hear the prayers

the sound of church bells
moves toward my home
through the Spring haze

New Haiku (11.17.2011)

A few new haiku which I love to share with my visitors.

in the twilight
mist creeps low over the field -
stars twinkle

the sound of church bells
moves towards my house
through the Spring haze

a long day's walk
through the mist of autumn -
finally the moon


The Poetry Palace, thursday poets rally (week 56)

thursday poets rally, week 56

A new week. So again a new thursday poets rally (week 56). I love this rally and I am glad that I have been invited to join. This weeks theme (a theme I choose autumn). I am a haiku poet and the autumn is one of the most lovely seasons (in my opinion). Just like the classic haiku poets I love the autumn moon. In my opinion the autumn moon is the most beautiful moon.

in the twilight
the autumn moon shines bright
on fallen leaves

through the branches
without leaves
the autumn moon

"look daddy!"
the little child yelled
the full moon

through the torn window
I am gazing to the full moon
of late october

Haiku Wednesday prompt "meditate"

Join the fun!

What to do with this new prompt "meditate". I love to meditate and writing haiku can be a meditative activity. So I will give this one a try.

walking on the heath
in the light of the full moon
the scent of autumn

a new day rises
inbetween the night and day
I meditate

A Few New Haiku, (2)

Sometimes inspiration comes along when reading a book. These new haiku are inspired by reading Blyth's Haiku Vol. II, Spring (The Hokuseido Press - Tokio).

in the Bamboo
in front of the little cottage
a sparrow sings

the cool breeze
stroking the lovely face
of Buddha's child

the small garden
on the tiny balcony
also Spring

THE GOOSEBERRY GARDEN: Poetry Picnic week 13 "childhood"

Childhood a wonderfull theme. When I was young I played a lot with cars, but also with dolls. I had a great childhood and my parents (thank God they are still alive) were the most loving and caring humans I know. I had a brother, but ... he died for almost 17 yrs at the age of 34 on lungcancer. I had only him, one older brother, so now I am the only child living of our family. I am now 48 and I remember that I cried when I became 35, I (the youngest of two brothers) had become older then my brother. It was an unpleasant day, but also a day for thanksgiving, because I could be there for my parents.

sad memories
good ones too, I am still
in my childhood

with a lot of love
and nice thoughts about him

For The Gooseberry Garden: Poetry Picnic week 13 come and see for yourself. The Goosberry Garden a great place for all poets.
