cold winter dawn –
from across the field floats the
crow of a rooster

Haikai Challenge #17: Hawk

old misty dawn – hawk
flies silently overhead
black against grey sky

Crayola Dawn

I am posting this on dVerse Poets Pub for De’s lovely prompt on Quadrille Monday. She requests that we use the word “dream” – dreamer, dreams, dreaming, dreamed – make the noun a verb or the verb a noun – it’s all good! A quadrille is a poetic form that came about a couple of years ago when we were making changes to refresh the Poets Pub. the form has exactly 44 words not counting the title. You must include the prompted word in your poem.  Come read these wonderful humming bird tiny poems. I am also posting this to Real Toads Tuesday Platform.  Here are the links for both:  http://dversepoets.com/2017/08/14/quadrille-38/   and  http://withrealtoads.blogspot.com/2017/08/the-tuesday-platform_15.html

Crayola Dawn
I see the dawn before the rest
of the world awakens.
I came to this dawn through the moonlight
of my dreams.
I dream of the world in argent shades
and awaken to the Crayola dawn –
It is cool this morning.
I am at peace.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Good morning

 

 

Good morning.  Sun drenched clouds float on a serene sea of blue.

October 1 Morning

and after the night
lofty clouds, flushed with passion,
greet us with no shame

Story in Six Words: 夜明け

samurai waits
gazes westward
sighs longingly
