Extremes 俳句

resting dragon heart
betwixt magic and motion
ancient pebble floats

Click Magic and Motion for a Random Penumbra HaikuThey are both there! Not a great photographer!

I am very grateful to live on an island off the west coast of Canada. I always try to take a bike ride after work and meditate along a section of shore to let the day go. Today, I was struck with what I saw – to my left, an ACTIVE volcano (
Koma Kulshan) and to the right, in the bright blue sky, the waxing moon rising in daylight! It took my breath away! Hence,
….. the resting dragon heart in a volcano …..
……. the ancient floating pebble in the sky ……
….. Those are the ‘Extremes‘ part of this haiku …..
… the magic and motion are left to your imagination …
….. And the resting dragon, her name is …….
Seraphina …..
… and there is even a lighthouse offshore too …

Lightfall 俳句

legacy brilliance
resilient novae reborn
destiny’s vision

diamond solitudes
lifetime prismatic palettes
unearthly lanterns

breathless aurora
silent ovations throughout
humble muse curtsy

ageless sky cadence
celestial lighthouses thrum
aged lightning unleashed

Oh, so many beautiful, wondrous, exquisite and imaginative words ending with ‘-fall‘ ….. nightfall, snowfall, waterfall and dewfall amongst so many more. There SHOULD be a word ‘Lightfall‘, if only for ….. haiku …..

I will be taking some time for a break from semi-daily haiku here at Penumbra Haiku! A few things I need to attend to!
Thank you for reading my short digital scratchings!

And I love this quote from Leonard Cohen:
“Going nowhere. . . isn’t about turning your back on the world; it’s about stepping away now and then so that you can see the world more clearly and love it more deeply.”

Dragon 俳句

shyest of heartbeats
talons as quill soul as ink
runes shared ‘neath full moon

dreaming papyrus
abundance of bits and bytes
digital treasure

sepia shadows
awaiting future eclipse
shelters dragon’s heart

….. just a feeling that I was a dragon ….. in a previous life!
….. and today is ‘Appreciate a Dragon Day! LOL!
