Haiku Heights April Challenge, day 15 "alive"


I am in the nightshift so on this day 15 I will also write the contributions for  day 13 (warmth) and 14 (aura) .But nevertheless I don't quit of course. The prompt for today is alive and that's an understandable word for me. So this day I could write a bit relaxed and easy. Well ... it wasn't easy, but a lot easier as e.g. coherent as we had on April 12th.

April 13th: Warmth

compassionate
smiling Buddha on His way
to enlightenment

to enlightenment
I hope I will succeed
through writing haiku


 


through writing haiku
I can feel the warmth of nature
deep within me

deep within me
writing haiku for the world
compassionate



April 14th: Aura

circle of light
a
round all nature
strong energy field


strong energy field
I can feel her strenght struggling
for her life




for her life
still good memories of youth
her heart cries

her heart cries
only child parted from her
dying all alone

dying all alone
with a smile on her face
circle of light



April 15th: Alive

cherry trees blossoming
nature is coming to life
in bright sunlight

in bright sunlight
the sunflowers look like real suns
what a sight!






what a sight
waves rolling over each other
breaking on the beach

breaking on the beach
a sailing ship stranded
in the spring storm

in the spring storm
the fragile young flowers
cherry trees blossoming


Well it wasn't easy to write such a long series of haiku, but I have catched up. See you tomorrow.
