Haiku Whirl



oil painting –

the seated man pauses

for the ages


wet sidewalk-

reflecting  city lights

inky sky


planting a tree- the hole too close to the house


fire pit-

feathery sparks

chasing mosquitos



scarlet bee balm –

summer drink


bamboo shoots sway

keeping time

with the shadows


an old woman

doubting every step

lost in the woods


Seated Man by Picasso

(The Seated Man  – inspiration for the first poem, this was painted by Picasso late in his life, when he was confined to a wheelchair)

For Sunday Whirl #124

  1. Lovely haiku, Wabi. I haven’t done The Sunday Whirl because of eyes. I save my focus for Carpe Diem and the twitter haiku. Such a beautiful job incorporating the words into an art form.


Thank you!
