Reflections in Haiku

Reflections in Haiku

Copyright 2011

Erin Lefey

Breaking through the Earth

Life springs forth in many ways

Reaching for the Sun

.

Roots will sprout from seed

With water, sunshine and soil

Renew the planet


Childhood memories

Swimming, laughing, having fun

Hot Bright Summer times


Mother, Great Mother

Teach us how to pray with you

We are your children

Toes in the hot sand

Marching to the warm Key waters

The Sea and I blend


Fish swimming round and

Following my footsteps through

Blue water high tide


Flying high above

I see me walking on shores

Distant and alone


Heavy Summer Love

Breathe In, Breathe Out - So Intense

Can you last through fall?

      Thank you Nell, I had forgotten what it was and then when I found out the simple rules for a simple one, I had to try.

      3 lines - 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables and it should be about a season, or clearly refer to one without saying it. That was it! I had to take the challenge. Thanks for stopping by, my friend!
