morning mist settles
no breeze but the breath of air
beauty of hoarfrost
This haiku is my response to Carpe Diem #1785 Hoarfrost,
which offers hoarfrost as a winter kigo.

Carpe Diem #1782 freestyling haiku … Devouring Apricots invites us to revise four haiku by Jane Reichhold (in blue) in a way that does not adhere to the rule of 5-7-5 for haiku, instead having minimal wording.
light carried in my arms
apple blossoms from a neighbor
on my doorstep
the fine hairs of er mustache
moist and juicy
broken by the storm
the asters’ fragrance rises
out of damp earth
rusty red the bracken
its shape lost as the cold
takes the bird’s wing

embracing light damp earth
apple blossom gift
on luscious lips
yields spent asters’ essence
wilting in the cold
of lost wings
red leaf of dogwood
brilliant yellow of maple
shadows dance with light
This haiku is my response to Carpe Diem #1781

bright burst of color
leaving blanket of dry leaves
this path to autumn
