Blue Haikus

Haiku Heights #111 – Blue This time I decided to offer two haikus – one “classic” and one American:

Bluebells ringing soft

My eyes will hear the whisper

Of the silent night.


At no haste.

Mirror on the lake.

Blue. Awake.

    I love blue and these haiku are both so pretty – bluebells are among my favourite flowers and I can spend literally hours gazing into the cove’s mirror…

  2. Ruth, bluebells are among my favourites, too. Thank you for your words of appreciation.

    nice blue haiku

  4. I have loved bluebells ever since I met my first ones in a little wooded area on a farm I owned several years ago. Your strategic placement of “bluebells” as the first word in your haiku awakens so many good memories for me. And I love that line about your eyes hearing the whisper–oh, that’s startlingly delicious!

    I have used my small verse website, but I also have another here where you found my longer verse/ Wordle. I also came up with a repeating ‘acrosTic’ that you can find at the longer verse blog. one example is:
    Thanks for your visit. You have inspired this piece based on the Dutch 11 word Elfje:

    silent ring
    heard in dreams
    pastel lilt lingering still


  9. I love Bluebells and used to walk among them often before I moved to Canada. Your Haiku are lovely.
