Cycliku for 3Word Wednesday

ThomG, moderator of 3Word Wednesday, offers the following three words for today's prompt: Darkness, Patronize, Weaken





double-down darkness
patronizes tight lipped moon
weakens harbor tide
saltwater hatchlings scratch sand
harbor tide weakens
patronizing tight lipped moon
double-down darkness






NaisaiKu and CYCLIKU! are informative links for this particular poetry form but I use poetic license and alter the rules to suit me and, hopefully, you!

My poetry books North of Summer and South of Winter are currently available at Amazon and, as always, available from my LuluBookstore in print or as download.

Suits me too. Found myself on a beach, hearing scratching sounds in the dark, listenin' to that weak tide.

"tight lipped moon" wow !!! :)

You have the most graceful images and aesthetically pleasing word flow. Week in and week out. What I love most about this is the hugeness of the tide and moon, surrounding the tiny little scratches of the hatchlings. Little life begins in the vast universe, and it has its place, and it understands its place, even in the darkness. Simply wonderful.

I'm such a huge fan of Haiku, so reading things like this, I admire. Nice done!

MichaelO said...

The form emulates the tide. I envision sea turtles making a go from their nests!

WonderfulWords, This really speaks to me!

Thanks for dropping by Small Reflections earlier this week. I'm finally getting around to returning visits ... and now that I've landed on your blog I'm reminded how much I enjoy your poetry and fractals. NaisaiKu and CycliKu are new forms to me ... but certainly intriguing. I've clicked over to check out the links you provided and just possibly will 'play' with possibilities soon. I also notice the theme for OSI is 'window' ... so perhaps I'll multi-task and do OSI with Window Views this week??? (or not). Your 'Midnight' fractal and poem are wonderful and remembrances of Pac-Man float in my consciousness as I type this. Hope all's well with you and yours ... and it's lovely to check in this morning ;--)
Hugs and blessings,
