Three from San Miguel

The first line of each haiku or senryu below is taken from San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato and the Bajío by Julie Doherty Meade. (I’m in San Miguel de Allende for the week.)

A tiny alley—
fearing the cobblestones’ wrath,
I cling to the wall.
~~ ~~ ~~
A lazy morning—
I murmur that I love you
just to hear you sigh.
~~ ~~ ~~
If your appetite
has taken you by surprise—
quick! quesadillas!

  1. I love that last one, especially that last line.


  2. I really enjoyed the differences in the moods of these three written for today. Great contrast.

  3. those cobblestones can be heck on heels.LOL I love all three of these there is sweet whimsy and emotion on these.

  4. Having to use a cane to walk, I can relate to the first one. I like the morning murmurs, and now I am hungry. A great trio!

  5. nice set…espec. liked the first two….love the ‘wrath of the cobblestones’ – great line….the second – I even sighed….

  6. The last made me chuckle. Nice work.

  7. I like a lazy little morning along the alley, sweet whispers, and an easy fix to a hungry appetite. Lucky girl, have fun!!

    ps~thanks for visiting my way. 🙂

  8. I liked the way you cleverly tied-in the poetic structure with your obviously exciting holiday.

  9. WHAT FUN!!! Quick! Quesadillas! LOL…that’s actually what I made the fam last night 🙂

  10. Thank you for taking me on a little vacation down south !
    Happy Friday!

  11. A lazy morning—
    I murmur that I love you
    just to hear you sigh.

    be still my heart!!!

  12. These are great. That last one made me laugh out loud. And crave a quesadilla! 😉

  13. Each haiku is wonderful but I especially like the one where you say I love you just to hear the sigh. Hope you are having a great week in San Miguel.

  14. lazy morning .. I can hear the sigh. Nicely done 🙂

  15. The first one reminds me of a visit to Fugi, Italy …Where the town on the hill was all stone and narrow winding star ways.
    My offering is here:

  16. I love the first and the second one… sighsss… beautiful… 🙂
