Live Water Haiku for One Single Impression



One Single Impression post: Thanks to Sue of Sunflower Roots for this week's prompt, live water.

spring runoff
floods low flung washes
lichen spreads

***

harmonics
six degrees of water
hazy chords

***

swollen air
rolls across the sky -
shedding rain

Many waterfalls have I communed with and come away renewed.

Beautiful image and I like the musical one too. I also enjoy communing with waterfalls.

Each piece is lovely. Together they evoke a gentle awakening. Isn't it wonderful when the swollen skies open?!!

qualcosa di bello said...

i paused on the second...such a gentle thought of a babbling brook came to mind...

but the third! wow!! my son is a meteorologist-in-the-making & i live those words, especially this time of year. wonderful!!!

Marguerite said...

Loved them all...especially the third one. The "swollen air" is "shedding rain" here tonight--April showers, I guess.

I love the picture, too. It is a perfect complement to the verses. Another great post.

Such talent- love the poems- especially the 2nd one and the image- beautiful!

bluetoque said...

The imagery of the second poem is very well done. I can see the ripples. Such an interesting take on it.

SandyCarlson said...

A gorgeous waterfall. These images make me think of the fulness, the now is the time, of spring.

swollen air... I have seen far too much swollen air in the last two weeks! A wonderful way to decribe clouds. What a lovely watercolor, too!

"Six degrees of water" - a wonderful line for sure ..

endurogirl said...

What Zoya said :-). It IS a wonderful line!

Tammie Lee said...

lovely painting.
Your first poem tells of my world today.
'swollen air' is a wonderful description.

What really sings in these haiku is the vitality of the water...these are lovely and the watercolor is gorgeous too.

Thank you!!
