Haiku - One Deep Breath


flecks of gold
pan sparkles promise
fool's dream

**


dreams of peace
and random kindness
beg for deeds







Vision. Prompt from One Deep Breath

I really like the haiku about "dreams of peace". I agree that they "beg for deeds".

Thanks, Paisley - I haven't a clue what's wrong - they seem to work for me...Oh, right. It's Monday and near 0 degrees. Enough to deter even the most hardy.

These work so well together. I like what you write.

I like the image of the dreams of peace in line with the flecks of gold. Little glimmers of hope.

Love that second one - very powerful.

I think all too often, people see themselves as unable to really *do* anything toward peace, feeling that the people in DC have the bit between their teeth.

May we make the dreams of the second 'ku come true!

You are so talented.
I wish I had the energy to still my mind enough to write poetry.
Funny huh? Wishing for the energy to be still.
Thanks for sharing.

Very nice both.
The second one is so true: dreaming is nowhere near enough.

qualcosa di bello said...

lovely...especially the second~~ "beg for deeds"...the important step that is often missing! & your watercolor is enchanting!

Quiet Paths said...

both of these are pairs of a kind to me... panning for miracles - great stuff.

LittleWing said...
