Eclipsed

Originally, I meant to write haiku for Carpe Diem’s prompt of Eclipse. Obviously, I need to write other stuff, too. Here it is:

Eclipsed by destiny
and the craze
of recent summer,
my shells-and-pebbles necklace
is lying quiet on the beach.

Forgotten, looking junk-like
now.
Just a whiff of hot sand
carried with the
harsh October wind.

Gloss, Haiku

September Heights #09 – Gloss

*** 

October morning

Frost is crisp on flower lips

Gloss remains till spring

 

Gloss remains till spring

Though those flowers perish fast

Crispy frost stays on

 

Crispy frost stays on

Flowers bloom on icy glass

Varied shapes and size

 

Varied shapes and size

Snowflakes swirl in mist outside

Windows sparkle gloss

 

Windows sparkle gloss

It comes upon a morning

Early October

Enter October

Enter October (and Robert prompted it on the PA Forum under #152):

***

When I see October come
I smell family

Early dusk
Weekend baking
The chill and red outside the window
And coffee steaming warmth inside

When I see October come
My childhood hears my Mom
Making endless fuss
Over overspills of milk, or flour blasts
Around the oven

When I see October come
I get festive, high on Muses,
Over-caffed and over-sugared.
