A Dozen Wonders

Haiku Heights
 
 

Here is a wonder—
a thimbleful of water
quenches all my thirst!
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Here is a wonder—
from the advancing darkness
someone calls my name.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Here is a wonder—
with art and revolution
light comes to the soul.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Here is a wonder—
a sudden desolation
may refresh your soul.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Here is a wonder—
along an ancient highway
you may find new life.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Here is a wonder—
my teacher is a poet
but can write no rhymes.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Here is a wonder—
if the geese have lost their way,
you must be their guide.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Here is a wonder—
the mermaids cannot save you
from the waves that rage.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Here is a wonder—
the sea of grass before us
parts when crickets sing.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Here is a wonder—
across the silent water
dance three unicorns.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Here is a wonder—
one morning in Chicago
backstreets turned to gold.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Here is a wonder—
I cause a brilliant wreckage
when I brush your lips.

  2. loved the line…”a sudden desolation may refresh your soul.”

    well if you’re writing Haiku, then you gotta sacrifice rhyming… 😉

      Every once in a while I write a rhyming haiku. I don’t think I will go to haiku hell for it! 🙂

  3. Here is my favorite…

    with art and revolution
    light comes to the soul.

  4. Here is a wonder. You are causing a wreckage with these brilliant haiku:)

  5. These are awesome, every one of them.

  6. …light comes to my soul ~ divine reflection ~ lovely haiku ~ thanks, namaste, ^_^

  7. Here is the wonder
    Dozen haiku to ponder,
    Bold soul reflections ~

    Cheers

  8. Here is the wonder
    what all is still left to be
    written a haiku..

    RS:)

  9. A bountiful crop from your haiku orchard.

  10. Here is a wonder
    At one thirty-six a.m.
    I am still awake!

    Having insomnia is no fun, but I enjoyed reading your set of “Here is a wonder” haiku. The first and last one were my favorites.

  11. WONDER-ful! These are terrific… I liked so many of them. The mermaids not being able to save in the raging waves and the brilliant wreckage at lip-brushing were stand-outs for sure. I think my favorite is this one:
    Here is a wonder—
    one morning in Chicago
    backstreets turned to gold.

  12. Crickets – I like that one best. 😀

  13. My favorite:

    Here is a wonder—
    from the advancing darkness
    someone calls my name.

  14. Here’s a wonder … 🙂 Great series of haiku MMT

  15. The world contains so many wonders. I like your dozen. My favorite, the teacher one. It suits me perfectly; I can’t rhyme to save my life. Thank goodness for haiku/senryu.

    Richard

  16. all so great; love the series

  17. Every one of your haiku is like a pearl which glistens with its own beauty… thank you for the images…

  18. Wow!…I liked the way you captured all those wonders at one place…now this is a wonder!

  19. I enjoyed these well done. The ancient highway reminded me of the road to Santiago. And sudden desolation certainly makes us forget the mundane.

  20. I like these all but Wowie that last one was romance personified!

  21. Love them all but agree the last was wonderful!

    Anna :o]
