dVerse Poetics – Everyday Poetics.

Today, Gabriella wants us to celebrate our “everydays” in poetry. We write poems for grand loves, loss of love, big occasions, but these poems are our everyday – our morning coffee routine, our drive home from work, our bread making day….I have posted several of these classic haiku over the last few days because they are about my everyday and the joy in the beauty of those days. Please pardon me for posting again but I am doing so for this venue and to give a bit of my everyday to you all. The photos are simple cell phone photos of sun, blue sky, trees and an almost hidden early appearing half moon.

半月 Hantsuki
summer half moon drifts
in a sea of blue – floating
sakura petal.

夏空 Natsu sora – Summer Sky haiku
serene summer sky –
birds nap in hidden nests as
hawks drift overhead.

春雨 shun u (gentle spring rain)
Gentle spring rain falls –
The sound like faraway waves
Or breath of a child.

komorebi  木漏れ日
summer morning sun
filters through leaves – gold dapples –
shadows dance trees sway.

hantsuki – half moon; natsu sora – summer sky; shun u – gentle spring rain; komorebi – sun filtering through leaves

    I really love them all at the same place.. but the one that really stuck out for me is the spring rain like the breath of a child.. that could have been written by one of the old haiku masters.

    Love the nature touches in these. The lazy summer abd the hawk makes me wish or a hammock. The rain one though is just magic,

    What beautifully reflective ‘everyday’ experiences you have written haiku about. I like especially the way you have described the sound of the gentle spring rain…but then again I also like the way you have described the way the morning sun filters through leaves….

    I especially like 1 and 3–but I love all your work, as there is a softness and reverence in much of it.

    I like them all but my favorite is the last one. I love how light changes with the season and can see that at the moment it is getting bolder and bolder.

    Always beautiful, and I’m such a sucker for rain. With your haiku, I was able to enjoy it on this dreary, sunny day. 😀

    the second one is so full of fearful apprehension though the leaves, like a mother are so protective…a lovely set…

    One may miss those every day episodes of floating petals to the ground or of eagles circling above. Good observation is still not enough unless blessed with a poet’s talent to spot them. You did it very well kanzen!

    You do need to live consciously in the moment to see this in the everyday. Beautifully captured, the very spirit of haiku.
