Join the fun!

This week's theme: Water

Tidal Pools

Tides gently roll out
Having brought nourishment, life
To pools left behind.

Waterfalls of NC

Thundering power.
Carving tracks; forging their paths.
Wonders of nature.

Liquid orbs burst forth
Spilling, flowing. Drippy mess.
Onions will do that!

Haiku is simple: 3 non rhyming lines of 5, 7 and 5 syllables respectively.

Come on in, the WATER'S fine!

I like your haikus and photos!

My Haiku:

Sweet flowing coolness
Running over the creek bed
Jump in and have fun!

Lee said...

I really liked your Waterfalls and Tidal Pools but the Tears not so much. Although, I was impressed that you thought of tears for the water theme, I think the phrase "Drippy Mess" grosses me out. But we've been there before, you are much more comfortable with body fluids than I am. *****

Jephy's Mom said...

I just wanted to add. When I read the theme last week, I thought, if I could write a poem, I would have liked to write about the women in third world countries who walk for miles to fill a container with with water. Balance it on their heads to get it home. And that is their water for the day for cooking, drinking and washing. With our morning shower, we use more water than she does and we give it no thought at all.

JMom...I would love to hear your poem regardless of whether or not if it's in Haiku format. How profound it would be. You are oh so right about what we take for granted here.

My mom took a photograph of that waterfall you have as your second photo (ncwaterfalls)...I have a huge canvas print of it in my kitchen. I love that waterfall!!

Well, I love waterfalls in general. :)

Awesome haikus as always.

Not only do onions make you tear but they give you stinky fingers :) But what are you gonna do?

the domestic mama said...

Happy haikus to you. I am better at making up words for odd things. Mah is me n my hubby's word that is used in place of a 4 letter one that sounds like sit. :)

Amanda Moore said...

Loved them all, the tide pool Haiku was my fave but the tears/onions gave a a great laugh for today.

Fabulous, Polly!

For Jephy's Mom --

Your comment already uses poetic, moving language -- you have a poet's eye and heart! Write your own poem -- it doesn't have to be a haiku. Do it!

Willoughby said...

I like the way you looked at water in different forms. Your haikus are fabulous, as always!

Holly Lefevre said...

Those are great. I really love the one about tide pools...visiting tide pools is one of our favorite things to do up here.

Oh. My. Gosh. That's what Haiku is? I saw it here and sat and stared at it, trying to come up with an explanation. That is so so cool! I'll have to give this a try. I love that waterfall in NC. I've got hundreds of pictures of it. It's different everytime we go.
And RE: your comment about my book review. I think I enjoy these books so much because they are so simple, don't require a whole lot of thought, and they're clean. Call me old-fashioned, but I don't think everything the kids are exposed to today are strip them of their imagination.
Thanks for stopping by Weezershaven. I really do enjoy stopping by here.
