Fresh Yellow

 

Fresh yellow scent

Beneath rush hour clouds –

Linger a little

 

This poem was written for Carpe Diem “Little Creatures” #10, “Yellow Valerian”, one of the Seven Autumn Flowers, another great prompt hosted by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.  All of the poems in the link-up can be read here.

Scattered/Unseen

 

Scattered between clouds

A little shadow takes shape –

Gliding wings

 

….

 

Unseen wings –

The rain hisses differently

When they pass
