Re: the neverending homemade haiku thread

I heard this quoted on the radio. Isn't it beautiful!
(I think the ruined house might be me!)

Although the wind
blows terribly here,
the moonlight also leaks
between the roof planks
of this ruined house.

Re: the neverending homemade haiku thread

even sheets on the line
candy in the august heat
melting  then with our dreams
in the night's breeze

just the time to hang the washing and it's ready to to be used .............. I do not like ironing wink

O yes, I love to shake the clothes and hang them carefully to let gravity and a breeze do the ironing!
On your hot night they would even smell as if they had been ironed. smile

Re: the neverending homemade haiku thread

a little too long for being a haiku but ..........


humbly kneading  on the ground
to  feel  the  earth breathe
and by changing breeze direction
exactly know
when itís time to go
while leaves colors tell you
what to seed  next

Lovely Mada, a true gardeners haiku!

A facebook person I follow often puts up a haiku, this was her post yesterday:

A haiku by Basho:

Lady butterfly
perfumes her wings
by floating
over the orchid.
