Haiku Heights April Challenge, day 23 & 24 "mesmerize" and "bliss"


Well ... here I am again. I missed a day and have to catch up with all your magnificent poets. So let's go do it.

Day 23 "Mesmerize":

I didn't know the meaning of this word so I had to search for it and I found the next meaning, hypnotize, fascinate and stupefy. With only fascinate I can write a few new haiku, because that's a word I can understand and use in a sentence.

all day long
birds flying to and fro 
so fascinating

so fascinating
to see how birds build their nests
with so little

with so little
leaves, feathers and branches
they fly

they fly
to and fro
all day long


Day 24 "bliss":

Another word I didn't know the meaning of, but ... well you know what I am doing when I don't know the words.

finally spring
happiness all around
what a joy

what a joy
after the dark winter
cherry trees blooming

cherry trees blooming
waving in the soft spring breeze
this is paradise

this is paradise
birds flying to and fro
finally spring


Well I hope to see you again next day, but I don't know if I am going to make it to write a new haiku. I have to work, so I don't think I have time to write.

Paradise, bliss, joy--they're all good! (So are the cherry trees!)

Is This Bliss?

Ik maakte er in mijn gedachten gelukzaligheid van. Zie mijn haiku.
Ook uit de jouw spreekt geluk. Toch?

I love the weaving and cascading haiku...Indeed I find it mesmerizing to see the birds building the nest...and yes, spring is finally here~

Loredana Donovan said...

Both sets of cascading haiku are beautiful, very nice thoughts and lovely nature images! I like them!

I hope you don't mind if I let you know that "there" should be spelled "their" in your first haiku.

Here is the difference in meaning: there = location, as in "I will meet you there."
their = a possessive, as in "their wings."

Have a wonderful day! :) Loredana

Excellent use of the word. The word mesmerize can fit perfectly where you use the word fascinate. Very difficult to do when English is a truly foreign language...congratulations.
I look forward to see what you post ... you see the world thru fresh and caring eyes.
Peace,
