Littleness Reaching


Littleness reaching –

A field of silver berries

Ripe in the abyss


This poem was written for Carpe Diem #584, Amanogawa (The Milky Way) September 2013 reprise, another great prompt hosted by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.  All of the poems in the link-up can be read here.

  1. Oh, how exquisite, Blake! This comes pretty close to perfection — it really does — it’s one of those haiku that you just want to read over and over. [Bowing]

    • Boy, I’ve had some catching up to do with replying to comments! Been too busy spamming BIOLI of late, it seems 😛

      So it’s taken me three whole days to respond even to this comment, which is almost certainly my all-time favourite. Because what I’ve enjoyed most about writing to prompts is how it leads you in directions you’d never have considered otherwise. But, in this case, reading your posts and chatting with you has led me to try an entirely new form – which is pretty darn cool 😀

      • You’re so right about writing to/for prompts — it pushes you to grow into new directions. Some of my blogging friends turn their noses up at prompts — but I think they’re really missing out.

        Again — really enjoyed this haiku — magnificent imagery and it really captures that feeling — feeling small in hugeness of the universe.

        And — I don’t consider your comments at BIOLI spamming 😀
