Kimo Day 11

the air smells of fish and algae, a lake
is hovering in the clouds…
come, let’s swim in the rain

Kimo poems are an Israeli version of haiku. Apparently, there was a need for more syllables in Hebrew. That said, most of the rules are still familiar:
• 3 lines.
• No rhymes.
• 10 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, and 6 in the third.

Also, the kimo is focused on a single frozen image (kind of like a snapshot). So it’s uncommon to have any movement happening in kimo poems.


Kimo Day 10

and just like that, the sky is blue again,
the sun’s shining, all is well,
and yes, I forgive you

~kat

I’ve been told I am too easy to forgive. But the way I see it, what is the sense of brooding about an offense. There is life to be lived and the day to be seized! Who has time for grudges! 😊❤️

Kimo Day 9 ~ nature’s way

nature’s way

breezes whisper, streams dance ‘midst smooth pebbles
buds unfurl into blossoms
there is no urgency

When deadlines and workaday madness overwhelm me…this. ❤️

Kimo Day 8 – election fatigue

election fatigue

this incessant obsession with the polls…
i don’t care who is gaining
as long as trump loses

Kimo Day 7

if you dare to believe in anything
keep to yourself, if you please,
at best, it’s a theory
