I Spoke

 

“I spoke in rose

petals falling falling…”

a firework’s voice fades

This poem was written in response to Carpe Diem #846 Chichibu Night Festival, another great prompt from Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. All of the poems in the link-up can be read here. And, to finish, here’s The Civil Wars –
 

Wind Falls

 

wind falls –

immense stillness of rustled leaves

that stop falling

This poem was written for Carpe Diem #611, Sylph, spirit of the wind, another great prompt hosted by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. All of the poems in the link-up can be read here. And if a haiku ever turned into a pop song then it might sound like this one by The Beach Boys.
