gogyohka for a waterfall

For Frank Tassone’s weekly haikai challenge.


water falls

swallow soars

above creeping flowers

yellow of trefoil

and waterfall blue of speedwell


cascade of colour

creaming the gold of summer

dew-spangled at morning

mist silver

by the light of the new moon

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. I’ll take mid 70’s mid 80’s… with an ocean breeze… now I just need to live by an ocean, which I don’t ๐Ÿ™‚

        It is all in what one is used too. To someone from Alaska 40 F is warm, maybe too hot.

      2. It depends what you have to do as well. This house stays cool even when it’s over 100ยฐ outside, but if I had to take public transport, do fieldwork or anything physical I wouldn’t last long!
