Beautiful Haiku written by Polly Stretton.

Light: airy, weightless,
a detectable wavelength
tiny wee photons

Haiku

Breathy droplets 
(suspended between dust motes)
drown my flailing lungs.

Spring Storm Haiku

At dawn, torn 
blossoms litter the lawn:
storm damage.

Haiku

Haiku Wishes

Puff faces, feather light 
wishes,waltzing with winds:
dandelion fluff.

Snowy-Spring Haiku

Spring dawn wakens to
susurrus snowflakes yawning
beside cherry blossoms.

Dawn Haiku

At first blush, lilac
hues seep into clouds resting
under rising rays.

Haiku

At dawn, nothing stirs
but fallen baby blossoms
caught a-whirl in wind.

Haiku, by Amanda Gilmour.

Insomnia

If only I could
sleep and inhabit dreams where
I wander freely.

Brittle

Brittle
He grew delicate
roots inside me,
brittle as glass.

Foinaven

Fractured quartzite-rocks
graze Achriesgill's grey edges
with scattered pieces
that I wrap in my lace scarf,
keeping the hill close.

Oldshoremore

At Oldshoremore, the
aurora borealis
waltzes over stars
while I collect broken shells
bathed in rose-gold glow.

Soul

As I burn your soul
onto paper, a butterfly
lands on my pen.

Dawn

Dawn's ghostly whisper,
dappled with rose-gold hues, seeps
into inky skies.

Sundown

In the gloaming sky,
pink hues seep from sundown, while
amber-tinged clouds bloom.

Penumbra

A sprinkle of stars
burn into nightfall, veiling
the moon's penumbra.

Waltzing

His ashes dust hills,
feeding wildflowers, waltzing
with wild winter wind.

by Amanda~Louise Gilmour

Shadow

In between shadows,
moonlight illuminates cats
fighting on spring grass.

Filigrees

Petal filigrees
press stencil 
patterns on snow,
echoing full bloom.
