Haiku Heights April Challenge, day 7 "forgive"

Also shared on:

For the Poetry Pantry # 96 :

Day 7 of the Haiku Heights April Challenge is on. Today's prompt forgive is a tough one. But it's a prompt which is especially for this time of year. Why? Because it's Easter. Today it's Silent Saturday (as we call the saturday before Easter) and it's a day of contemplation and meditation.

Today I will try that unique 3-5-3 haiku form.

meditate today
roses bloom

roses bloom
between bare branches -
broken wings

broken wings
a little bird flew against the window
forgive me please

forgive me please
I have broken the crystal vase
of my grandmother

of my grandmother
I found a youth photo
she was a beauty

she was a beauty
the rose I broke today
forgive me

forgive me
with tears in her eyes
she asked me

she asked me
deep from the heart

See you again tomorrow.

This is a lovely set of haiku. Perfect for the season. My heart went out to the little bird who flew against the window. This happens at my cabin and sometimes they die. It can be very sad and I can feel guilty too.

I have never written a chain of Haiku before, I find that an interesting method. Nicely done.

What a lovely weave of words. Beautiful, gentle and yes, forgiving.

Laura said...

how beautiful...and forgiveness is just this way, it meanders through our lives beside compassion, gratitude, joy and love all woven through the moments of brokenness and sorrow.
