My friend, Kristjaan, hosting the wonderful blog of Carpe Diem Haiku, is never tired. He offers daily, weekly and seasonal prompts. He holds contests, features many translated haiku and great pics. His blog is a great resource of information and support. Although this is not a classical haiku, because it has “my tears” in it, I wrote it after his Little Creatures prompt. Visit his haiku meme blog here. You may decide to join. Who knows what might come.

Carpe Diem, Little Things #19 – Violet

My tears will remain
in place to breathe the beauty
of a violet bloom.

Red or Violet

April Poem-A-Day 19 – Colour in the title

Red or Violet

Yellow as the sun
has always been my fancy colour
Though they say
yellow flowers mean hate.

Yet, it’s always black
that I give in answer
to the age-old girlish question.

While in truth violet
and red, all types of red,
wake my smile
and my dream.

This is part of my April Poetry Month project. I know colouring the stanzas is childish, but the temptation was too strong.
