By the Flying Fox


by the flying fox

I felt her kisses brushed off

the first spring wind


This poem was written in response to April 1, 2018, another great prompt at Seeds and Sand. The prompt and poems can be read here. Here’s the Flying Fox, looking quaint and English –

I Carry Rain


I carry rain

usher storms, but once I came

floating into my life


This poem was written in response to Chèvrefeuille’s Gift To You To Celebrate Our First Luster Of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai #5 Use That Quote, another great prompt from Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. The quote in question was from Rabindranath Tagore:

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”

So, after a little editing, my haiku is practically a found poem 🙂
