Carpe Diem Haiku – Sogi’s “dewy evening”


Both grasses and trees
waiting for the moon
dewy evening

Write something for this and a troiku to me I especially like that portion about waiting, there is something special with dusk and dawn.

silver moon –
turning dew to gems
richness of the night

silver moon –
following its path
a gentle breeze

turning dew to gems –
emeralds
kissed by dawn

richness of the night
burns in blazing sun
barefoot bliss

  1. This is enchanting. And I really enjoyed the troiku explanation at Carpe Diem – though I did have to fight my impulse to read left to right, as in:
    haiku
    haiku haiku haiku

    which had me starting with the first horse and not the sleigh – a relic of the Greek and Latin system I learned my 3 r’s to, I suppose. (Though, I know, not all countries print words that way.) Very interesting, Bjorn.

  2. I thought that might happen when I hit “post”. The first haiku (or sleigh) was meant to appear centered over the middle haiku (or horse). Oh dear . . . moving on . . .
