Haiku In Honor

“Sometimes glass glitters more than diamonds because it has more to prove.”  Terry PratchettThe Truth.


“Embracing the Light
Collected bits of truth
Shimmering sparks
Shards of light
Merge
Healing
Restoring
Bursting Bright
Rising
in divine ecstatic flame.”
These quotes were chosen for the inspirational prompt at
Haiku For Two

The tulip caught drops
Rearranging them quickly
Having more to prove.
~
Dance in wild flowers
Shimmering truth heals
Divine flames rising
I'm thinking I should give this up, folks!

Just lovely! :)

Rosemary Nissen-Wade said...

I too say, don't give up - and I love best your first. :) I also think it was clever of you to find two such complementary quotes.

No, no, no... No giving up! Very ambitious tackling both the legends and I think you did very well!

Fantastic haiku and photos. I love the first one, "more to prove."

Björn Rudberg said...

No reason to give up. These worked well with the quotes

I like the way you have included the wisdom of both Nimoy and Pratchett in your description of flowers.

Sandra said...

Delores said...

I wish I could say I appreciate Haiku.....

Lynne said...

Oh no, never give up . . .
I am not as mellow with the Haiku though . . .
I appreciate the form, just like "anything Gail" much more!

Don't be silly, your poetry is just as wonderful as your stories and photos, you rock in my reading list. I wanted to write a haiku in honor too, but life and stuff got in the way. I was even thinking (but never did) about leaving little haiku poems every single place I went over the weekend.

I can't agree. Good job!
