Micro Haiku

One Shot Wednesday - Poetry Week 29

Winter strawberry,

Grows overweight in garden,

Miniature pleasures 

Darkened path,

Hand & hand walking,

Illuminating Us

Soaring hawk,

Causes us to seek shelter,

Brave tomorrow 

So little rice,

 Much winter enduring,

 Summer love 

This poem was written for One Shot Wednesday 

Dolls in this Haiga are more than 60 years old; the strawberry was locally grown & magnificent.

Love all the haiku's and the adorable photo's which in it self do tell a story blends very well. I believe I especially love the last haiku.

I love Haiku and your image and words were so beautiful. Inspired me to write this one, using your words...

Pleasure, hand touching hand
Delights, summer love
Braving winter of memories
