Haiku Heights April Challenge, day 28 "clarity"



Also published for: Poets United's The Poetry Pantry





There we are again for a new day in our April Challenge of Haiku Heights. This day it's all on clarity, the prompt given by Becca Givens, clarity (in dutch helderheid) has a few synonyms for example brightness, purity and serenity. All words which I can use for today's haiku. So lets start.

bright sunlight
reflects on the white wall
shadows moving

shadows moving
making my kids anxious
I caress them

I caress them
in their purity and serenity
my adult kids

my adult kids
standing in our garden
bright sunlight

Very lovely set...I like the bright sunlight and children's purity ~

I am also sharing that clarity means a clear vision or being understood.

Happy day ~

Clever twist to meanings of clarity, Chev! And it's the familiar cascading effect again! Great take. Danke!

I really like these series of 'cascading' haiku. Shadows can be magical... thanks for reminding - I will look out for the shadow of the tree on my wall, it appears around 2 'o clock...
