dVerse Poetics: Anthropomorphism

Today Lillian is pubtender at dVerse and is prompting us to write anthropomorphic poetry such as…”Hey diddle diddle the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon. The little dog laughed to see such a sight and the dish ran away with the spoon.” In other words, giving human characteristics to non-human “things”. Come join us at: https://dversepoets.com/2017/04/04/anthropomorphize-me/ I have provided two haiku and one senryu for Lillian’s prompt.
I.
haru no kumo**
chase each other across spring
sky – children playing

II.
dragon dog castle
clouds bend themselves into shapes –
water forms miracles

III.
drifting along in
the sky – floating free – formed from
vapor – blue skies smile

 

**haru no kumo – spring clouds

I.
small chrysanthemums
white and yellow gaze at clouds
in blue autumn sky

II.
aki no kumo**
Chase each other across fall
Sky – children playing

**autumn clouds

III.
Hawk flies between sky
And pond – shadow on water
Only frogs can see.

new year sky: cloud paths
lead in many directions –
our choice where we go.

Autumn sky – aki no sora – a haiku

blue autumn sky: clouds
of finger painted white wisps.
I can’t look away.

鰯雲 Iwashigumo

Mackerel clouds swim
Leisurely in blue sky sea
At one with the tide

clouds
