Double Haiku

Double Haiku

mysterious landscapes
rise and unfold before my eyes
worlds of Clouds

mysterious landscapes
backlit by the sun
beckoning

rise and unfold before my eyes
dragons and knights quell fears
as they dissipate

worlds of clouds
sweeping away the mundane
in a gust of wind

mysterious landscapes
forging the terrain
of my imagination

backlit by the sun
forgotten hopes and dreams
remembered

beckoning
my true self emerging
from veiled shadows

rise and unfold before my eyes
new paths and adventures
to conquer

dragons and knights quell fears
of the daily grind –
youth awakened

as they dissipate
I wave goodbye to worry
a smile emerges

worlds of clouds
Spark the imagination
dreams unfold

sweeping away the mundane
cobwebs of my life
trailing

in a gust of wind
a new spring added
to my gait

Challenge 199 Synonyms only- Move & Make

I decided to write a haiku this week and then use a form called Troiku created by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. This form uses each line of the starting haiku as the first line of the next haiku. It does not have to all be related, but I like to challenge myself to create one idea.

autumn colors drift
creating butterfly clouds
swirling around us

autumn colors drift
stirring memories when time
was at a crawl


creating butterfly clouds
enveloping the spirits
of our youthful past

swirling around us
the happiness of childhood
imbues our essence

COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 196, #THEMEPROMPT

My father introduced me to the constellations as a child.  We would first look for the milky way and then start finding the summer constellations.  Of all my siblings I was the only one really interested.  Even with meteor showers, one by one my sisters would slip into the house until I was alone with the heavens, stars and my thoughts. This is still one of my favorite things to do.

Milky Way, Universe, Perseids, Cosmos, Stars, Nature

night sky so clear
I see my childhood
through father’s eyes

~~~~~~~~~~~

alone in the dark
watching the Perseids shower
all night thoughts blazing
