Creation and Death

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

  1. Oh, this is so sad! Can’t help arguing that your star will always shine.

  2. Lovely Haiku Mariya.

    On a different note..I loved your theme. Is it paid?

  3. poetrydiary says:

    I like the first one of these – it creates an image of the tree for me.

  4. 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.

  5. It’s also about death on the Poetic Blooming site so then alright I wrote one. Please Mariya enjoy this:

    WORLDS COLLAPSING

    My left hand went for your
    stomach,
    inches above it,
    and
    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:
    “Mama?”

  6. 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 🙂
    Best, MK
