Octobers’ day dance
With sunlit leaves in a flaw
-Fall just rattles on

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 319 – Trip / Whip
The challenge is to create a Haiku containing this week’s words

Sunday Morning Reprisal

(Just wait till we get home!)

Trip to olive grove
To select a proper whip
-Double punishment

Just how painful should it be
To fulfill a mother’s aim

Then Again

Day’s closing sunlight
Meets this evenings shade of blue
Young lovers must part.

Young lovers must part
Daylight memories remain
Thoughts cast to the night

Thoughts cast to the night
Fills the heart with pleasant dreams
Till night becomes day

Till night become day
And blue is lit by sunlight
Love begins again

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 317 – Eye / Light

Five Momentary Hues

Glimpse of tomorrow
Seen in the light of their eyes
Lover’s destiny

          ©2020 cj holm

First light of morning
Linking hearts and open eyes
Desire’s golden chains

          ©2020 cj holm

Refracted sunlight
Rainbows caught by children’s eyes
Magic thoughts in air

          ©2020 cj holm

Last light of battle
Seen by soldier’s dying eyes
Opens heaven’s door

          ©2020 cj holm

Sparkle of dew drops
Delight early morning eyes
Light’s priceless jewels

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 315 – Chimpanzee / Kiss

White House chimpanzee
Sits behind his right shoulder
– There to kiss his ring

He never questions orders
Makes a perfect running mate
