Haiku challenge: Charm & Look

Judging from the entries already posted, this has been a very fruitful choice of words. Here are my efforts for Ronovan’s weekly challenge.


Charmed lives has the cat

Peering at the golden carp

Dares too far—eight left.


Poplar charms the wind

bowing over the river

sees branch-latticed sky.


Beauty everywhere

look at the sky reflected

in a bright raindrop.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. So exquisitely descriptive. Your Haiku took me on a visual of inner sight as your words took me on a hike as my senses were being stimulated by absorbing each layer you revealed as the Haiku eventually advanced the complete story of the perfect connection of the photograph communing with nature; water, animals (each in their rightful places), air (a reflecting sky in tear-drops). All so divinely poetic. A wonderful gift of awakening the senses. How delighttful the trip. – jk 🙂

      1. There is so much of it to fill infinite descriptions. Though nature is being pulled away by force by the greedy, we must be its advocate. Keep reminding anyone who will listen how immense it should be and its sheer beauty and sometimes fear it can create. Speaking of storms and natural disasters. Natures way of fighting back and stomping her foot to tell those who want to destroy her, TO STOP IT! Can you tell I am on the side of Nature.
