in the deep pool a woman
becomes a child

enchanted weald
the tree nymph
become a real girl
love given to false-hearted
doomed to sorrow and pain

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
