Hawthorn Haiku

hawthornhaiku

the sun behind the
swaying hawthorn tree contrives
transparent leafglow

its shadow on the
wall conducts an orchestra
of soft woodwind boughs

this gardentone now
lulls the thorns of consciousness
to drowsy placid peace

    • Mr Person you do me great honor with your interpretation of this work and the resultant nomination for Best Performance for a Blogger. I thank you sincerely. Please excuse this tardy acknowledgement. You sir have made my day!

    Mike, I applaud you for your glassy smooth handling of the 5-7-5 “form” in your three-linked haiku. Very impressive. Also, I must thank you for choosing to follow my “Randa Lane…” haiku blog. Very much appreciated.

    Best Success,

    • I assume Chrissy you’re referring to my neighbor Tom Sebastian Eliot, our local football hero ’cause he’s got a voice like a foghorn in a funnel. Thank you for this magical scattering of sparkling pixie-dust on my efforts.

    • This is my first EVER online reading maryrose so your feedback will help settle my nerves for the next one (sometime in 2016…perhaps…). Your additional exhalation on my little puff piece is greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

    • Benevolent Phoebe – this is endorsement indeed. What you heard was actually the therapeutic effect of Jameson Irish whiskey massaging the larynx.

  2. Wonderful! And that second stanza is absolute perfection…also, what a delight to have a reading to accompany it (lovely to hear what your voice sounds like).

    • Thank you sage and generous patron of my fugitive fragments. With the spoken word I’m only following in the footsteps of an existing poet-pioneer that I have been enjoying aurally.

Whaddya think?
