Stardust Haiku





Pleiades needle
in and out among hoodoos
stitching sky lines


**


fence free
garden of cosmos
star spangled sky

I don't know how you make them, but that fractal is perfect for this post.

Two great last lines, can't decide which I like better!

Deborah Godin said...

I like both of these, but especially the first one, and the first line! Really good image!

lissa said...

stitching sky lines - love that! it's always amazing how so few words can create so much thought

anthonynorth said...

Perfect - especially the first. And the picture is stunning.

angie said...

Oh, I love the sounds in your words: "Pleiades needle" "hoodoos"...and the play on the word "cosmos" is delightful!

I'm going to follow your log! ;)

Jim said...

I'll take the first one, thank you. Just about every year I spend several hours watching for the Pleiades display and always have been disappointed. One or two falling stars is all I ever find.
Stardust is a nice song as for the reading of the words. I guess I was riding motorcycles and listening to rock music when F.S. did his singing as I don't remember any by him ever.

Sue, that fractal is wonderful! It is -- what does the song say: Golden. A garden of cosmos... I really like the double meaning;if you look up through the flowers then it's a star spangled sky at that angle too. Great verse and they made me smile.

Geraldine said...

I especially love, "star stangled sky" perfect! Well done Sue.

Hugs, G

I like both. They kind of go hand in hand. The first line of the first is wonderful!

I read your poetry and say "yeah" and then struggle because that seems to be such an inadequate comment. But there it is. So all I can say is Thank You. I am speechless otherwise.

KB said...

I love both of them too.

Dave King said...

The first is the one I would choose if I had to, but both are tremendous - as is the image.

Gordon Mason said...

These are great, especially the 'hoodoos'....its such a long word when held on the tongue!

Linda Jacobs said...

I like the "garden of cosmos"! I also like how your poems are so compact but they reflect such a wide area.

Pam said...

The fractal image is perfect for the prompt. Your haiku of stitching skylines is very nice.

Sue said...

thank you for introducing me to the term "hoodoos" -- what a great image! Your second poem reminds me of a painting I did thirty years ago called "the sun and the cosmos."

John Tran said...

I love the imagery... fence free garden of cosmos... conjures up images of vast openness with stars for flowers. Thanks for some new words too! :) Happy New Year!

Tumblewords--
you always make shiny jewels out of gravel when you put them in your tumbler...

these are great! I too loved the fence free line...'defenses down...the stars got out'!

Happy new year--many thanks for the loveliness you bring to the world!
