HAIKU HEIGHTS, prompt "Covert"

A new challenge for Haiku Heights this weeks prompt "covert". I didn't know this word and so I don't know the meaning of it in Dutch. But ... on line translators are great so I found the meaning of Covert. To write about this prompt a haiku. It's not easy, but for sure I will come with a haiku.

covert garden
behind these great walls
all those flowers

colourful leaves
in the covert garden also it's autumn
Ah! the full moon

"It's a secret"
the little girl whispers -
a large snowball

Credits: Fox Glove Lake

in the old barn
behind the hay bales
a secret meeting

Join the fun!

A new Sensational Haiku Wednesday challenge. This week's prompt "malice" I didn't really know what to do with this one. Malice a tone of angriness, but I am not so good at writing about negative feelings such as malice, but I have given it a try.

such a malice
cherry blossoms in full bloom
the Spring wind!

Credits: cherry blossom

the rough weather, through the clouds
the full moon

in the garden
despite the heavy rain
a snowman

PS. In the last two haiku I have used a synonym of malice ... despite.

Gooseberry Garden: Poetry Picnic "my life"

For The Gooseberry Garden's Poetry Picnic a new series of haiku. This week about "my life". Well ... what can I say about "my life" in haiku?

my life
it's all moving around
a Japanese verse

haiku, haiku
and again haiku
just like Basho

male nurse
the patients are my care
just like haiku

in the low lands

I write my prose and poems
in Basho's Spirit

I think that with these series of haiku I have given a good view of my life. When you need to know more? Well ... look at my profile.

Happy Poetry Picnic,
