Limestone Pavements
limestone scars   
thrust up through Earth's crust   
white pavement   
      abrasions by glaciers    
      where spiders string their webs

Micropoem | joy and sadness

wrap yourself in quiet
put sadness aside
look past pain to joy

deep rivers carve their way through stone
falling tears both heal and burn

Koi FIsh and Lily Pads

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 334 GRACE and Slip

graceful in the pond
koi slip under lily pads
sheltered from the sun

they gossip together and
lunch on tiny water bugs

The Tides of Love | #RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku # Poetry #Challenge 332

Forever Love

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 332 Ebb & Flow

life’s tides are certain
rhythmic changes shape our years
flow and ebb…and cease

entwined hearts drawn in the sand
now buried but eternal

drip…drop…plink…kerPLOP
raindrops falling off the roof
wake me from my sleep

evening’s gentle lullaby
a reveille at morning

Winter White | #RonovanWrites #Haiku Challenge 275 Wail / Wake

 

in the blizzard’s path
the wail of the lesser winds
thick blankets of white

caress of warmer breezes
flowers wake to autumn’s light

Moth Wings | #RonovanWrites #Haiku Challenge 273 Forest/Whisper

RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #273 Forest&Whisper

mist arising in a dark forest

written on moth wings
illumined by fireflies
whispered through the weald

all things end as time rewinds
and the world begins again

Well meant, but sometimes… | #RonovanWrites #Haiku Challenge 269

Words and actions are open to interpretation.
Sometimes, what is heard is not what’s been said.

RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #269 Coping&Support #NAMI

Good Vibrations

solace of silence
no voices but bracing winds
or humming of bees

coping is an inward thing…
imposition’s not support

All Together, Now | #RonovanWrites #Haiku #Weekly #Challenge 268 Gratitude, Harmony

Piano sheet music, aged

harmony
many singers, many songs
of thankfulness

rooster’s hymn to morning’s light
wisdom of the owl’s “whoo”

gratitude = thankfulness
