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

しゅんう shun u: haiku

Gentle spring rain  – sweet
fragrance. birds sing with the soft
rhythm of light drops.
