#TankaTuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 256, Colleen’s Specific Form: haiku

WELCOME TO #TANKATUESDAY!

This week’s form is: Haiku.

I have decided to write three Haiku, using the three forms I know, 5/7/5, 3/5/3 and 3/2/3.

I suffer from Raynaud’s disease it was undiganosed as a child so winter is full of cold memories. I also took the music of Tori Amos as an inspiration.

I missed last week’s due to my eyes but it’s not going away over night so I am pushing forward in to this new year happy to be in such great company.

in early winter
the earth stands frozen in time
hibernation’s key.

*****

Memories
Of winter that’s past
Dreaming time

*****

Winter
Solid earth
Waiting.

    These are so lovely, Willow. And thank you for teaching me about Raynaud’s disease – I hadn’t heard of it before.

    Excellent haiku, Willow. I know about Raynard’s disease. It’s not fun, that’s for sure. I hope your eyes get better. I’ve had problems with my eyes recently, as well. I’m not on antibiotic drops and they help with the inflammation. It’s nice to see a bit of Sue in your poetry. Huge hugs to you. ❤

    Beautiful Haiku. I had to look up your illness, I hadn’t heard if it. I wish you good health

    I enjoyed all three haiku and like the ideas of them, hibernating and waiting, of dreamtime and memories.
