Re: the neverending homemade haiku thread

Keeping place and time
for vegs to go to seed
is like looking at a whole rainbow

(I know it's not an haiku wink ..............

Re: the neverending homemade haiku thread

lol  lol I learnt that one from my dear Aunty Edie!

The other one she taught us is also a favourite of mine:

Life is mostly froth and bubble
Two things stand like stone:
Kindness in another's trouble
Courage in your own.

Re: the neverending homemade haiku thread

For Marie, a real classical Japanese poem

Although I know
My body is a thing of no tomorrow
Yet I am cast into grief
In the remaining twilight of my day
For her already taken by the dark

Re: the neverending homemade haiku thread

And another poem I heard for the first time last week

The Swan

The labouring through what is still undone,
as though, legs bound, we hobbled along the way,
is like the awkward walking of the swan.

And dying to let go, no longer feel
the solid ground we stand on every day
is like his anxious letting himself fall
into the water, which receives him gently
and which, as though with reverence and joy,
draws back past him in streams on either side;
while, infinitely silent and aware,
in his full majesty and ever more
indifferent, he condescends to glide.

By: Rainer Maria Rilke

Re: the neverending homemade haiku thread

O that is a lovely one Ashen.
I got sidetracked from this being a homemade haiku thread. I am glad you didn't.
