wispy dreams of spring
blooming along the snow road –
Carpe Diem # 414
Recuerda Mi Corazon -haiku my heart
Here are two more responses to the prompt ‘early bloom’ at Carpe Diem. My mind ranges all over the place and I’m never sure that my finished poem (a) addresses the prompt or (b) is haiku or senryu. The first one refers to a discovery I made in my garden a few weeks ago. I found a tiny primrose blooming under the dead leaves!
I love humor in haiku but seldom achieve it to my satisfaction. Many other poets who share on Carpe Diem have a knack for humor and often give me a chuckle or a belly laugh! The first one below is still an attempt to respond to the prompt and reflects my poetic insecurities:
This transformed itself right before my eyes into this one. The prompt is completely gone but I think it reflects my gut feelings much better!!
