Healing #Haikus

These Haikus are about the power of Nature to help us find solace in a world gone crazy.

Heartsick, I espy
golden rays through lush foliage
…Spring’s cure for angst

– and later that day –

Moonlight, clouds, and stars…
such flirts – shimmying expertly
to ancient rhythms

Haikus and body parts

I wrote a Haiku today in response to a #vss365 prompt and posted it on twitter before I remembered that I had pledged to include anatomical elements in each Haiku. Obviously, then, I felt compelled to modify it.

I’m posting the original one here and also the modified one. Have a look…

*vss365 (very short story, one for every day of the year)

The original verse:

Iridescent paint

Nature’s sublime canvas glows

Murky air plays foul

delicate cherry blossoms on twigs under blue sky

The modified Haiku:

Iridescent paint

Nature’s canvas enthralls

The heart yearns afresh
