Weekend Meditation #99 crossroads of summer

buttercups
peeping through fog
opening to the sun

sunshine lights
on hibiscus leaves before their
own dark

after the rain
opening to the sun
a hibiscus

after the rain
shining diamonds
on pink petals

opening to the sun
fresh colorful flower –
butterfly in flight

a hibiscus
swaying in the breeze –
bees all around

Weekend Meditation #97 depth of a flower (CD Crossroads)

windy weather
calling the flowers by name
each nods

depth of a flower
flying away with the bee
some mystery

field of flowers –
flying away with the wind
fresh perfumes

field of flowers –
a white butterfly lost
in the depth of a blue bell

flying away with the wind
bees laden with pollen –
summer rain

fresh perfumes
floating in the air –
shining raindrops

Daisies … Troiku challenge

daisies standing strong together
after the storm

around the mansion
buzzing busy bees –
monotonous music

daisies standing strong together
caressed by the midday sun –
shadow of a cloud

after the storm
crowned with raindrops
resplendent petals

Flowers (modern kigo) – Troiku

depth of a flower
flying away with the bee
some mystery

© Jane Reichhold (1937-2016)

depth of a flower –
the morning sun reflected
in a drop of dew

flying away with the bee
the sweet perfume of the rose –
a petal falls to the ground

some mystery
hides in every flower –
summer sunset

Troiku Month (20) With the moon

with the moon
night too disappears
into the ocean

© Jane Reichhold (1937-2016)

with the moon
the streetlamps light up
one after another

night too disappears
when the morning star
rises in the sky

into the ocean
a lot of starfish
come to the surface

Troiku Month (18) Ancient Cypress

leaning over the light
at sunrise

(Extracted from her never published gathering of haiku titled „Ocean Sanctuary”)

ancient cypress
connecting earth and sky –
black flamelike

leaning over the light
it becomes fabulous
in this starry night

at sunrise
it’s shining like a god
surrounded by rays

Troiku Month (17) Breathing Silence

alone on the beach
only the cries of seaguls –
breathing silence

© Chèvrefeuille

alone on the beach
I follow the moving waves –
wandering thoughts

only the cries of seagulls
interrupt this calm twilight –
setting sun

breathing silence
my peace-filled soul
rises to God

Troiku Month (16) Heat Waves

heat waves
bringing to the desert
an ocean view

© Jane Reichhold (extracted from „A Dictionary of Haiku”, the online version)

heat waves –
dreaming to run under
a cool rain

bringing to the desert
burning winds and sandstorms –
lost caravan

an ocean view
from a high cliff –
foaming waves
