Daybreak


rainbow sky
watercolor wet
repaints night


diffusing
ebony to gray
...rising gold


night spirits
give way to pale light
bird chatter


nightblack drops
below the camber
wakes the dawn



For One Deep Breath

The first one is so visual, but I love them all and the brush strokes of your painting.

Really beautiful, Sue! Each haiku has a jewel in it: "water color wet/ repaints night"; "rising gold"; "bird chatter"; and "wakes the dawn". And I really like how the colors merge and transform in your watercolor.

beautiful all of them, but especially the first.

Christine said...

All of these are just so evocative. I can find an experience of my own in each.

Fledgling Poet said...

Beautiful! Especially "water color wet, repaints night"...

Shelley said...

Loving the blurring together that comes with watercolor on the page or light in the sky...

And that painting is a great "bonus"...

thank you!

these are the words of a painter...love the "night spirits give way"...could feel them slipping away.

Becca said...

I have to second Megan's comment - these are definitely "painterly" haiku. Very beautiful :)

These are soothing like the gentle awaking of daybreak. So visual.

Your haiku paint such clear pictures of early morning. I can visualize each one. Beautiful.

Just lovely, words and painting both.

lovely haiku and painting!

I like the returns, the attempts at recapturing the dawn.

The first stanza is quite visual and fun. The images contrast just enough to shimmer, I think. Wonderful.

Really nice. I love the contrast between spirits and bird sounds ... not quite solid and real yet. :-)
