Haiku challenge: Beauty & Quiet

A gogyohka sequence in response to Ronovan’s weekly prompt.


quiet fills the spaces

between leaf and stream

water and dragonfly wing

flight and leaf

hushed beauty


not silence

because who has heard silence?

Listen hard

and you will hear the breath

of a rose


light drips

hues of sunlight

caught in cupped petals

paint a rose

with beauty


and when dark falls

who would dare call quiet silver

less beautiful

than the vibrant colours

of the sun?
