CLAYOQUOT SOUND HAIKU

copyright Gaby Harig


Wolf Spirit, your call
from your misty mountain lair
sends my soul keening

***

footprints in the sand
my heart follows where they lead
till I'm home again

***

bonsai in the bog
a little touch of Asia
in Clayoquot Sound

***

shore birds on the sand
lift,  dart, swoop and land as one 
summer joy in flight

***

in the following I tried 7-5-7


Luna leaves as Sol arrives
Sun and Moon - same sky
little boat chugs happily

***

Sharing these haiku from 2014 with the Poetry Pantry at Poets United. Do come join us for some great poetry on Sunday morning.

  12. I like them all, but the ending piece I simply love--the dance between Luna and Sol, how good they are at sharing, the way they keep on keeping on...

  13. I love the footprints in the sand... it works so well for me... when you put them in a series I always try to draw a line between them...

  14. A beautiful antithesis to the artificial nature of the modern world that many of us live.

  17. The accumulation pleases, but none so much as that little boat under the same sky as all the rest.
