watching unfamiliar stars trace
so far from home
Coiled tight around her beating heart
she ventures forward.
With the weight of all heavy on her back
she scribes the world in silver.
the ocean – here
a response to Haiku Horizon’s prompt – Ocean
and with total respect to and in awe of Toni Child’s Where’s the Ocean?
through closed lids:
molten gold –
bouncing off Melinda J. Irvine’s sunlight
Inside that impenetrable entanglement of thorned roses –
a dragon dreaming.
Within that keep –
my great claws flex.
It’s no haiku but inspired by haiku horizons prompt castle
a new canopy unfurls &
butcherbird practices her song
response to haiku horizons prompt ‘leaf’
earth’s crust exposed –
the hum of the traffic
my response to Haiku Horizon’s prompt: cake
feeding steaming horses under bright wattle –
my black feet!
Response to Haiku Horizons prompt: burnt
behind orange jessamine
she holds her breath –
response to Haiku Horizons prompt: drop
in deep water, a silent stone –
and the songs of fishes
