Kathy B Haiku: HAPPY BIRTHDAY USA

                                  Happy Birthday USA photo

I gaze to the sky

Lovely lights make it dazzle

Raining down from high

Although a bit late for the weekly challenge, my cousin Kathy just attempted another haiku challenge from Ronovan Writes blog using the words “sky” and “dazzle”. I am enjoying the challenge of putting different and even opposite words in such a short poem.  If you like challenges and haiku’s then I invite you to also accept his latest challenge at this link: https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/category/haiku-prompt-challenge/

Holding tight to reins of

Control; found I must let go

While on quest of hope.

Becky’s Haiku: Lightning and Rain

Lightning flashed across

The stormy sky while rain dripped

And drizzled outside.

A dark and gloomy

Day filled with clouds and peals of

Thunder claps aloud.

Tis nice to remain

At home inside where I can

Watch the storm and hide.

Becky’s Haiku: Not Invited

004

Like a dragon roar,

The uninvited storm then

Thundered through the door.

Becky’s Haiku: Breathe

456

Step outside and breathe;

See the sunlit sky stretch out

Like the rolling sea.

Inhale the sweet scent

Of Spring with new grass and leaves

Vibrantly blooming.

Hear the wind blow; A

warm yet rustling breeze jostling

the tall dancing trees.

Feel the sun’s warmth as

It softly surrounds you in

It’s orange glowing hue.

Hark the song bird’s chirps

In melodious trills in

The forest and hills.

Look with hope upon

The sunrise letting it fill

Your soul searching eyes.

And let the peace of

This gentle beginning stay

In your heart resting.

May the journey of

This new day begin; a fresh

Though unearned blessing.

Savor the moments

Knowing each is fleeting and

Yet a treasured gift.

Stroll and wander on

Your way remembering this

Day that God has made.
