Haiku My Heart

It's a long time ago that have posted a haiku for Haiku My Heart, but I have to share this haiku somewhere ....

close to my heart
memories of my joyful youth 
on a sacred place

on a sacred place
hands before my face
tears on her grave


Credits: Fresias

tears on her grave -

the sweet perfume of fresias
her beloved flower

her beloved flower
every anniversary of her death
a fresh bouquet

Isn't it a sweet, sweet scented flower? I can smell her perfume. Triggers memories of my grandmother.


PS.: If you like writing haiku maybe Carpe Diem's Daily Haiku Meme is something for you.

Haiku Heights # death

Inspired by the theme at

A new week of haiku writing has gone with the wind ... several weeks ago I posted a post here for Haiku Heights. I haven't had time to participate in this weekly haiku meme for a few weeks mostly during lack of time and the time I spent on my own daily haiku meme Carpe Diem but I had to write a haiku for this weeks prompt 'death':

frost on the branches
the cobweb crystalizes in the sunlight
a death spider

a death spider
hanging in it's crystal cobweb
food for the birds
