September Heights #15 – Creation
The stiff awareness
Of blinking and swallowing
Cherry tree in bloom
Crescent moon weeping
Sad and mournful of the time
When stars will not shine
Night in the orchard
Bats whoosh to and fro in search
They hear the future

Oh, this is so sad! Can’t help arguing that your star will always shine.
Lovely Haiku Mariya.
On a different note..I loved your theme. Is it paid?
I like the first one of these – it creates an image of the tree for me.
Nicely written … I like this triplet very much. It’s different with the other haiku I have read for today’s prompt. Thank you for sharing.
It’s also about death on the Poetic Blooming site so then alright I wrote one. Please Mariya enjoy this:
My left hand went for your
inches above it,
so did my sister’s
only we didn’t say a word
when my sister and I held our hands above you when
you took your last breath or
sort of blew it out.
In that moment we knew that we would never be your
little babies anymore and my sister whispered:
Dear friends, thank you for your warm words and encouragement!
Diwakar – it is not a paid theme 🙂
Andrea – this is such a beautiful poem, and it speaks to me so much. I mailed you 🙂
