The Rapture


the rapture of sun

in a red surge of poppies

bursting with bees


This poem was written in response to Carpe Diem #666, Poppies, another great prompt hosted by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. All of the poems in the link-up can be read here. And, to finish, here’s The Rapture –

  1. Oh, very nice — very sensual! Had about twenty different comments to make — but none of them appropriate outside the dungeon 😉

    Great stuff —-

    And you always choose the most interesting musical accompaniment. Broadening our horizons here, as always. 🙂

    • Really? I honestly had no ‘layers’ in mind here at all – I just wanted a scene with some feel-good warmth 🙂

      Ah you can take the girl out of the dungeon, but… :O

      And I don’t know about you, but sometimes I have a haiku ready to post but still need a song…thirty minutes later I’m still looking on YouTube. So, if the post’s title is a band name…nice 🙂

      • I’ve been in the dungeon so long there’s lichen growing behind my ears. [Shaking my head sadly.]

        And yes — sometimes it seems to take longer to find that accompanying music and/or image than to write the haiku itself! A happy coincidence to find matching titles!

      • Whoooooosh!
        [Adding sound effects. That’s supposed to be a whirlwind.] 😉

        It gets easier though. Unfortunately “photopin” changed its format though – will have to find another great photo source.

      • My, you even do impressions! Of weather!! Which are my favourite impressions 😉

        And good luck with the photo source – here’s to keeping BIOLI the multimedia extravaganza we know and love!
