TBD

TBD on Ning

It might be fun and interesting to do a variation on Rishi's "Une Lingne Donne" discussion in which three participants will each write a full haiku (rather than a single line) that will end up telling a cohesive haiku "story."

The first person will write a haiku. The second person will hit "reply" to that haiku, copy and paste it in the reply box, then add his or her own haiku. The third person will hit "reply" to the second  offering, copy and paste the first two haiku, then add the third and final haiku.

Three haiku for each completed "story" sounds good to me because it gives the opportunity for a beginning, middle, and end.

I'll begin...

cold winds of winter

horses' whinnies crack the air

distant golden glow

 

I approach the hearth

trying to thaw this cold heart

she grabs my chilled hand

jonquils and tulips

force their way through permafrost

spring blooms in my soul

horizontal palms

manhole covers pop like corks

summer hurricane

road packed exodus

scurrying for higher ground

lives more important

homes can be rebuilt

material things re-bought

lives can't be replaced

donned fully in black

after midnight she slips out

silent and unseen

 

lured by mysteries

raven wings of night enshroud

her soul's intention

after midnight she slips out

lured by mysteries

raven wings of night enshroud

her soul's intention

in her lover's bed

robes of night fallen to earth

she gives everything

The Neighborhood Bar

select wines and unique beers

building friendly cheers

 

each one has a Norm

characters same, new faces

all want to connect

seeking what's missing

inhibitions set aside

and one empty stool

 

 

paper heart doily

with words scribbled hastily

left there just for me

paper heart doily

with words scribbled hastily

left there just for me

 

i kiss the red ink

my pulse racing, soul soaring

for the love of you

just out of my reach

i long for that hard soft touch

time has its own way
