#TANKATUESDAY Weekly #POETRYCHALLENGE #262 #ThemePrompt @SyllabicPoetry @ColleenChesebro #Haiku

Hi everyone! πŸ™‚

Today, I’ve joined Colleen’s weekly TankaTuesday challenge, which asks for any syllabic form based on a theme prompt.

Ken Gierke (Rivrvlogr) from last month’s challenge picked the theme:

TRANSITIONS

You can find Colleen’s post HERE.

I’ve chosen a set of four Haiku with a syllable count of 3-5-3 for each. Haiku are not titled.

Sun comes late

Lights lit all day long

Shifts each week

…

Bulbs flower

Nights shrink from onslaught

Then comes heat

…

Scorched dry earth

Lush green becomes brown

Leaves yellow

…

Orange hue

Heralds shortened days

Sun comes late

 

I hope you enjoyed this set of four Haiku.

Have a lovely day! πŸ™‚

  1. Harmony, this is an amazing haiku series of the four seasons. I enjoyed this so much. This was lovely and a great way to show the transition of time between each season. <3

    • Fantastic! Thanks so much, Denise. I loved how that came together for me. I felt it brought the transitions and cycles into a closed circle that just seemed to fit πŸ’•πŸ™‚

  2. This is a lovely set of haikus, Harmony. You have inspired me to write a poem for this theme.
