Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge #152

La Jolla, Ca

Sea lion plays in
Foamy Pacific color
Sun’s warmth on her back

 

Black whiskered swimmer
Riding current’s colors to
Warmth of rocky shore

Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge #150

Glorious spring clouds
What miracle in the sky
That can save such joy?

Save the springtime sky
Pink evening miracle
For wintertime dreams

Saving falling stars
Hands held out to catch delight
Futile miracle

 

Haiku/Dragonfly

Windowsill zebra
Striped wings galloping on glass
Hoping for freedom

Un-forever

The clock on the mantle
A depreciating anniversary gift
Ticking, tocking, chiming
Apparatus
Marking less every second

Unbalanced
The pendulum stops
Unmoored, unfettered, untrimmed
Hours
Faking forever

Unmoored

Tanka

Wish I was my cat
Afternoon oligarch of
Brown couch obstruction
Like the Russians say to Trump
Let’s do kibble and a nap

Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge #149

Karma, my dear, will
Circle ’round, excite the moon
Tides will surely rise

 

Excited fledgling
Perched on the edge of the nest
Awaiting karma

1 Haiku/Qualm

Slithering neighbor
Neither of us had a qualm
On my morning run

Qualm

1 Haiku, 3 Tanka/Collaboration

Restless rhythmic world
Spinning in a galaxy
Of seasons and storms
Three hundred sixty five days
Endless collaboration

Maple in winter
Austere determination
For frugality
Dormant sleeping twig sculpture
Collaborating with sky

Autumn leaves drifting
Silent poets in frosty
Collaboration

Lush summer sentry
Collaboration of leaves
Confident maple
Monument for nests and shade
Breezy green celebration

Collaboration

Nest available
Cozy twigs and warm southern
Hospitality

Tanka/Final

Strawberry season
Sweet soul filling gift of May
Scarlet ambrosia
Spring preserved in eight ounce jars
Sticky sunshine and sugar
