Monday Morning #Haiku 37 — Yellow Blob

Watery Sunrise 01

Watery sunrise
Transient glow soon engulfed
Rooftops slick with rain

Sarah is a British eccentric who writes offbeat fiction, haiku and tanka poetry. When stuck for words, she sketches or paints instead. She's into nature conservation, sustainability, gardening, dogs, natural health, and reading. Her sociability is something that happens in short bursts with long breathing spaces in between.

  1. Your photo looks like a painting, Sarah. As for the word art, I think I like the penultimate line best; I see it as balanced bookends in my mind. “Transient” and “engulfed” are the weightier ends, and both make nice near-oppositions, then the two “small” O-words (books!) are there holding the middle.


    1. Thank you, Cybele. Just to let you into a secret, I added to the misted effect by taking the picture through a dirty window! So you have similar weather to us then. If I’m right, I think we’re roughly at the same latitude, although people tend to think that Canada must be much further north than the UK, just because the country freezes up much more in the winter without the benefit of the Gulf Stream, but do correct me if I’m wrong about this, as it’s many, many, many years since I studied Geography at school!


    1. So glad the photo and haiku calmed you, Sherri. That’s why I started doing my Monday morning haiku slot, as I thought it would be good for people to start each week with something calming and uplifting. The little bird is really sweet. I love blackbirds.


      1. I think it’s a lovely idea you have here Sarah and I will make sure to come by on a Monday instead of a Wednesday from now on! Blackbirds are beautiful, I love them too 🙂
