Poetry Friday: #haikuforhope

 

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday filled with family, friends, feasting, and love. Somehow, I managed to keep up with Mary Lee Hahn’s #haikuforhope. Here are my offerings for the week.

brief December days
bookended by darkness
long for sun’s bright shine

feathers ruffled
against a cold, steady rain
swans glide onward

snowflakes flit and float
scattering fairy dust
over the world

dawn’s golden light
filtered by gathering clouds
still holds promise

swollen stream rushes
babbling its timeless tune:
joy to the world

silent stars swirl, our
dazzling partner in an
endless cosmic dance

  1. Catherine,
    I enjoyed your haikus, especially this one because I cannot see the stars in the sky from my Long Island home.

    silent stars swirl, our
    dazzling partner in an
    endless cosmic dance

    The snowflake one makes such a beautiful visual:
    snowflakes flit and float
    scattering fairy dust
    over the world

    Would you be interested in offering one of your poems for my autumn gallery?

  2. Catherine, it’s been such fun writing haiku together! You’ve created some beauties here, and it’s hard to pick a favorite. As usual, I’m pulled in by water imagery with your babbling stream, but I just love dawn’s golden light and its serene optimism. Happy New Year!
