A mist haiku trilogy

Mist in the treetops…

The clouds have come visiting;

the sun stays at home.

*

Mist turned to drizzle…

The sky eats the horizon

and spits at the earth.

*

Mist dissipating…

Birds snatch disappearing worms

and swoop to the sun.

  3. I like this trilogy. There is a logical cyclical progression and connection. On a stand-alone basis, I like the second one best, but that’s purely subjective. I don’t usually like haiku put together to make a longer poem (a “haiku” being a “short poem”, and myself turning into a grumpy, snarling old lady) but I do like this series.

    • I write stand alone haiku, too. Whilst meditating on them, it depends whether my stream of consciousness ends after one, or passes under many bridges. I usually compose them in my head whilst walking the dog — there’s something about the combination of fresh air and movement that assists my creativity. I also learn words to songs whilst walking.

      You might be interested to take a look at an earlier post of mine — ‘Visual Interpretation of haiku (1)’ that’s part of a multimedia project I’m doing with an artist, which will be in an exhibition in April. I’m pointing you towards this particular illustrated haiku, as it is about a dying tree I love that I haven’t the heart to cut down. I thought, as a fellow tree-lover, you would appreciate the sentiment.
