First Wave


first wave

over my head the foaming

white blossoms


This poem was written in response to Carpe Diem Time Glass #26, First Blossoms, 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 Curtis Mayfield with the sound of spring time –

    • Thanks, Chèvrefeuille – the world has started to show its more gorgeous aspects again. And I must admit that writing haiku has made me pay some extra attention to the fact 🙂

      • Oh! That really is one of my favorite images of all time — but yikes — that’s a lot of blossoms!

        It’s great to see where a person’s inspiration comes from – very cool 😀

      • Fear not! There really weren’t THAT many blossoms, Jen – that would have been like a 50s B-movie.. Invasion of the Blossom Creatures from Mars :-$

      • I’m more of a giant squid/octopus man myself – all films are improved by their inclusion. Citizen Kane vs the Giant Squid.. Much better!

      • This DID make me snort out loud!!!!

        Saw a web article about octopus/squid in horror movies and in art – especially Japanese art / cinema. It was interesting. Will have to see if I can find it again —-

        What an image — I can see CK against the backdrop of his giant campaign poster — then a giant wave and a gargle — and whoosh! tentacles everywhere!

      • Exactly! Giant squid are masters at electioneering – I mean, it’s all very well having a finger in every pie but that can’t compete with having a tentacle in every.. (hmm at this point the comparison leads me to the word ‘tart’ but, well… So, the sentence rather peters out here, I’m afraid) 😛

      • A tentacle in every tart!?!? Oh my. I’m going to walk away from that comment — whistling quietly — but poorly — because I’m trying not to giggle 😉

    • It really was delightful to look up and see all those delicate blossoms waving overhead – it seems to happen so suddenly: there are months of greyness… and then colour! Thanks, Georgia.
