Over Bluebells


over bluebells

a certain kind of loneliness

a robin stands still



This poem was written in response to Carpe Diem Universal Jane #15 birdcage, another great prompt from Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, and one that includes a wonderful essay by Jane Reichhold about how to write haiku.  Having forgotten most of what I used to know about writing haiku it was fascinating to re-read Jane’s tips 🙂

  1. You’ve really captured the moment in this haiku – I love the loneliness over bluebells – where ‘blue’ adds to the atmosphere – and that still robin!
