Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille September 7th 2016 tribute to Jane Reichhold.

wild flowers abound
grass so green and sky so blue
beauty around us

frame of nature
the gentle waves of the sea
watching the sunset

coconut trees sway
paddy fields in the background
birds chirping sweetly

MINIATURE WRITING CHALLENGE #59 – Gift

img_8792_2

a gift of friendship
not taking it for granted
nurture it with care

nurture it with care
exclusively mine and his
when it breaks it hurts

when it breaks it hurts
like it’s the end of world
perhaps in that world

end of beautiful friendship
if we could turn back the clock

Prompt Nights – We tend to smile in the exact same language – [27]

smiling of eyes
sincere and pure emotion
the eyes never lie

when someone smiled at me
it pierced through bad things of life
all was well again

a ray of sunshine
a smile is so contagious
you pass it on

the presence of heart
sharing a smile is a gift
it lights up the world

Carpe Diem #1038 snow

[…] “I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” […] Lewis Caroll

a snowy morning
black bird perch up the tree
waiting to get food

fresh snow falling
so pure and white all over
a bright day ahead

our shadow on the snow
some fresh woods in the fireplace
drinking warm mulled wine

winter this year
when snow covers our garden
buries our treasures

Carpe Diem #1037 pleasure

[…] “There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more.” […] Lord Byron

magnificent things
rolling hills and waterfalls
nature at its best

the clear blue sky
the wind brushing my hair
birds sing as I walk

the autumn leaves
the colours of the rainbow
make my day all bright
