Three Dream Haikus


1. That day the Alps grew slowly beautiful.
Touching hands, we learnt to ski.

2. I did not race the river as I walked
Beneath the soft glades of spring.

3. Such was her loveliness,
It might have been ensnared
By a dream haiku.

    the images are beautiful as the expressive words are either carefully or naturally selected for the expression, but there are some differences here that collide with traditional haiku scheme, the base you laid for conveying the feel is neat and good! (Report) Reply

To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
