Trust

For week #68 of Haiku Horizons, the word prompt was ‘trust’. Luckily, I remembered to write it. I think I missed last week’s haiku challenge.

Trust

The trust invested
By those who matter to you
Is to be cherished

Song

For week #66 of Haiku Horizons, the word prompt was ‘song’. I immediately thought of nature, birds and birdsong. 🙂

Song

A trilling birdsong
Misty morning’s sweet greeting
Nature’s herald’s song

Water

In week #63 of Haiku Horizons, I wrote a haiku using the word prompt ‘water’. This haiku talked about water being essential for the sustenance of life, and also touched on the spiritual aspects associated with it.

Water

Elixir that cures
Sustaining delicate life
Washes each being pure

Life, so brief and short

Today, I’m writing a haiku for Haiku Horizons, because well, I like to write poetry and I like some variety. 🙂  In week #62 of Haiku Horizons, the word prompt is ‘short’. I decided to write a double haiku for this – two haikus opposing each other.

Life, so brief and short

Life, so brief and short
Why are we busy chasing
Material success

Life, so brief and short
Focus on peace, happiness
Change in perspective
