Becky’s Haiku: Touch and Miss

I reached to touch the

Sky; felt the lofty air but

 Missed the clouds up there.

I stretched high to grasp

A lofty dream but up it

Floated far from me.

I have attempted a new haiku challenge from Ronovan Writes blog using the words “touch” and “miss”. This is often an enjoyable challenge for those who like writing short poems.  If you like word challenges and haiku’s, then I invite you to also accept Ronovan’s latest challenge at this link and have fun: https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/category/haiku-prompt-challenge/

Why should my Heart be full of Cheer?

Pics from Camera 2-8-2015 378

As I gazed at a fluorescent blue sky

Where no stormy clouds appeared

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

Twas a silent blustery wind but dry

And no wafting sounds could I hear

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky.

No birds to witness nor bee or fly;

Also, no ominous foreboding to fear

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

I then began to wonder why

My heart should be full of cheer

As I gazed at a fluorescent blue sky.

While my eyes upward climbed

Into that lofty, arid atmosphere

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

I continued to contemplate why

My heart should be full of cheer

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky.

This day was bitter cold and dry

As expected this wintry time of year

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

Draped in the cold sunlight

I stood on the land, frozen and bare,

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky.

Banks of snow, gleaming white

Still remain here and there

As the orbed sun had journeyed high.

I pondered and wondered why

My heart should be full cheer

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky.

A cold chill crept up my spine

Thanks to the frigid weather

And the orbed sun had journeyed high.

With a start, I suddenly knew why

My heart should be full of cheer

As I gazed at the fluorescent blue sky:

I realized my Lord and Savior is why

for he promises to always stay near

As I gazed and gazed at the fluorescent blue sky

And the orbed glowing sun had journeyed high.

Becky’s Pantoum: Somewhere Deep inside the Forest

044

Somewhere deep inside the forest

Like sky-scraping statues stood a cluster of trees.

While the evergreens remained firm and steadfast,

Leafy limbs swayed in the whispering breeze.

Like sky-scraping statues stood a cluster of trees

As two chattering squirrels scurried about;

Leafy limbs swayed in the whispering breeze

While they clamored and climbed the forking boughs.

As two chattering squirrels scurried about

Spying enticing acorns dangling way up high;

 While they clamored and climbed the forking boughs,

The squirrels scampered toward the sunlit sky.

Spying enticing acorns dangling way up high

While the evergreens stood firm and steadfast,

The squirrels scampered toward the sunlit sky

Somewhere deep inside the forest.

The Narrow Bridge

052

Crossing the narrow

Bridge, I wondered what new place

Lay over the ridge.

Perhaps a meadow

Of flowers or a stream filled

With rippling water.

Or perhaps a new

Mountain to climb and reach its’

Peak to touch the sky.

Sometimes a problem

needing a solution and

I must trust in him.

Sometimes it is pain

And grief when sad news reaches

Me; must still believe.

In life I’ve learned each

day is a journey to lean

on Jesus only.

Letting him lead the

Way through the trials and

Triumphs each new day.

He continues to be

My Savior, Lord and true friend

For eternity.

So as I cross a

New bridge I’ll lean on him to

Reach that distant ridge.

Becky’s Haiku: Dazzle and Sky

Sunlight dazzled in

 The clouded sky; rays of hope

In the gray twilight.

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”.

Becky’s Haiku: Vast and Clear

021903_0850[00]

One winter day a

Sundog did appear when the

Sky was vast and clear.
