Haiku Heights, prompt "tiptoe"

Also published for:

Such a wonderful idea this challenge of Haiku Heights. An every week challenge with every week a new prompt. This week's prompt is "tiptoe". I have searched some websites to find synonyms for tiptoe, and I found the next ones: 'in the air' 'night walk' 'pussy foot'. I will use these I think, because I have nothing with 'tiptoe', but ... never say never.

high up in the air
the skylarks singing their song 
my heart is listening

on pussy foot
the young boy is walking through
the girls dressing room

every day night walk
through the neighborhood
a Nightingale

dancing swans
on the lake next to the concert hall
tiptoeing love

Mm ... I am glad this weeks prompt has inspired me. It was tough, but also a wonderful challenge.

'till next week :)

Sensational Haiku Wednesday on "silhouette"

Join the fun!

Also published for: The Purple Tree House, back to basic

Hello to you all. Another Sensational Haiku Wednesday. This week's prompt is "silhouette", must be an easy one I think. Let's go do it and join the fun of writing haiku.

boy's silhouette
on the white mansion wall 
between sunflowers

under the willow
on the city's graveyard
weeping silhouette

playing with the sun
the shadows of my children
on the white wall

I have tried to write these haiku in the classical form of 5-7-5 syllables, not so easy as I thought, because I write my haiku mostly in the Kanshicho-style. In this style the syllable count is different.

Well ... until next week :)

Spring, colors, new live and trees

Also for The Poetry Rally week 60

The Gooseberry Garden Poetry Picnic week 22
 Another week has gone. Time flies like sand through your fingers. This weeks theme for the Poetry Picnic is Spring, colors, new live and trees. So I have to write some nice haiku about Spring. The season in which nature again comes to live. It's a lovely season to write haiku about. So here we go.

laying down
beneath the young leaves
the teenage boys

Ah! the cherry trees
in the cool spring breeze -
Ah! that perfume

such happiness
the young cherry tree
comes in bloom

this sunset
colors the white cherry
Ah! such a beauty

Credits: cherry trees in the evening

cherry blossoms
in the evening light
so fragile

the cherry trees
I am longing to sleep
under their colors

Happy Poetry Picnic
