Emergence ~ haiku

The following five haiku/senryū were included in my submission to Pure Haiku for the most recent theme, Emergence. The fourth and fifth appeared at Pure Haiku on March 7th and April 16th. My thanks go to Freya Pickard for featuring these.


true spirit revealed
a nature too long hidden
gender acceptance

chrysalis of green
parting as beauty unfolds
regal orange and black

long wait is over
nurtured in a mother’s warmth
a child’s eyes open

after long nights’ sleep
bear wakes in darkness of den
hungry for daylight

neurons fire, thoughts coalesce
