Nature's Lace Design




nature's lace design 

each one-of-a-kind pattern 

a work of art 


******

 

roots of a tree 

intertwined like lace stitches 

fragile leaf parasol 


******

 

young bones were straight … strong 

til his old limb cracked deeply 

fragile eighth decade 

******  

THE DAILY HAIKU poem prompt:  Lace

* * * * * 

lady in lace 

marries magical man 

together forever 



Homage to my co-worker colleague who is getting married.  I called him Magic Matt.

Strong, Yet Fragile


strong yet fragile 

body handles hard work 

kintsugi heart 

So Close, Yet So Far

 



so close, yet so far 

siblings safely huddle 

listen to mom 



So Quiet

 


so quiet 

raindrops softly tap at window 

surfing on wet glass 


******

 

puddle on camp chair 

waiting to dry out, til then 

bees drink 


******

 

raindrops sparkle 

for just this present moment 

silhouette - bird's flight 


******


crash of thunder 

he jumps up, eyes wide open 

friend or foe?

restrictions lifted 

 

fourteen frolickers 

celebrated Midsummer's Night 

 

food and drink imbibed 

stories, jokes, poems … all read aloud 

prizes, laughs, hugs awarded 

 


*** 

 

gardens rain-soaked 

flowers stand tall and wide 

 

the Green Man 

waves hello and goodbye 

to summer season 

 

on Midsummer's Night 

Warmth and Fire

    artful friend stories with hot lattes warms the heart * * * sugar sprinkles atop frothy hot milk sweet ... like lif e * * * fire in the ...
