Grasses Sing Haiku


snowflakes fly sideways
grasses sing in the fierce wind
nature bows to storm

Note: Embracing the classical beginnings of haiku, as this author understands them, and as described in the post: Carpe Diem Goes Back to Its Roots #4 by Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. I cannot hope to explain haiku better, so I just link in zen appreciation. Peace and Joy!

  1. Welcome at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Special Brenda and I hope to see you here again. What a nice wonderfully composed classical haiku you’ve shared with us all. Thank you for your kind words. I am your host here.


    • Delighted to meet you, I have seen your footprints here and there. I am happy to look for your prompts in future. I love the haiku and tanka forms. All my writing is improving from embracing these forms. I’m not sure I fully understand all these rules, but I have the scent and I am on the trail. 🙂


  2. I like the word, “sing” instead of the darn whistling I hear through the trees and around the corners of the buildings close to my apartment building! The grasses sing! Yes, that cheers me up immensely, Brenda! Smiles, Robin


    • I’m so happy, I thought the grasses looked quite happy, swatting at the snowflakes and bouncing around merrily. 🙂 I’m glad to cheer you up! Smiles to you, too! Brenda

  4. Having rarely seen snow I find it absolutely magical. I love the photo of the golden reeds against the fluffy white snow – it looks so magical. Your haiku adds to the magic. Reading your description of the weather conditions when you took the photo I realize it is actually cold, wet stuff that can make life difficult. Keep warm. 🙂


    • Thanks. The picture is a bit blurry because the wind was really howling, and I had my back turned so the snow would not ruin the camera. 🙂 I was surprised it turned out at all well. LOL
