decrees, have my wings and fly

join me in the sky

Special thanks to Mr. Energizer, himself, for dedicating and honoring me with my First Haiku.

I’m truly excited, humbled and grateful. Your such a wonderful friend, encouraging and supportive.

Ivor posted the Haiku in the comment section, after reading my post Witty Butterfly Post. I was eluded. Ivor’s Creative Poetic Charm flourishes with so much joy.

Witty…Butterfly

Thanks again Ivor,

Yonnie💜

Veneer Bruises

Haiku: Veneer Bruises

All surfaces bruise

Not all bruises can be seen

Pain permeates all

“Burning Jacob’s Ladder”

Dreams stripped down beyond firelight
I would go over but my only coat’s off white
And seeing things unreal
God knows what that stain
And what comes crawling back again

Tears are harbored
Down to the thorny altar
I’m afraid I might fade away

It’s to the blood we sing and burn
Thousand blackbirds on a string return
There’s a solitary sun too high
Gone without the chosen one, goodbye

The ashes scatter
Burning Jacob’s ladder
I’m afraid I might fade away

It’s to the blood we sing and burn
Thousand blackbirds on a string return
There’s a solitary sun too high
Gone without the chosen one, goodbye

It’s to the blood we sing and burn
Thousand blackbirds on a string return
There’s a solitary sun too high
Gone without the chosen one, goodbye

Rage untethered
The soul a stony desert
I’m afraid I might fade away

Dreams stripped down beyond firelight
I would go over but my only coat’s off white
And seeing things unreal
God knows what that stain
And what comes crawling back again

The ashes scatter
Burning Jacob’s ladder
I’m afraid I might fade away

The Flower Show

A Haiku for V.J. Knutson. Earlier in the day, I said to V.J.  I was going to the Geelong Orchid Show today and she wanted some photos, and I hope my post here, conveys the beauty of the flowers that were on display …. I’m not a good photographer, and all of these photos have been cropped and colour enhanced…… And today’s  Weekly Photo Challenge is: Edit... << Please click here to view, the “Weekly Prompts” site…

 

Haiku:  The Flower Show

 

A hall full of blooms

The scene, a sea of colour

Flowering perfume

Trees, We Apologise To Thee

Today I’ve added another Haiku to my piece from yesterday to create a dual Haiku, I hope it doesn’t detract from the heartfelt intentions of my original Haiku, and I’ve also added another piece of glorious music by Ludovico Einaudi.  Thank you Kate, of Calmkate, for the excellent photo prompt

Haiku: Trees, We Apologise To Thee

 

Ancient trees of life

Anoint colour to the sky

Cast shadows aground

 

I, hugging a tree

I, apologise to thee

I, seek mindful peace
