Waterfall on a Dry Day

Rain-dappled Purple Clematis

suburban waterfalls
dry blossoms dappled with damp,
clematis stars

Note: This haiku is in honor of Chèvrefeuille, who is now running haiku prompts on WordPress, yeah!! I had such trouble finding him on blogspot. This week’s prompt is Waterfall. If you’ve seen the Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, here’s your chance to join the party.


Clematis flower with beetles

Pretty moonflower,
Tattered and chewed,
Still you glow sweetly,
Each night renewed.

Note: I called this flower a moonflower, not because it’s the moonflower morning glory, but because it’s a flower I found glowing at twilight, under the moon. It’s a clematis. I hope my poetic license is up to date. 🙂
