Kimo – Day 14

…just another summer day

simmering humidity, hot, thin air,
clouds hang in the breezeless sky,
low, gray, hoarding raindrops

Kimo poems are an Israeli version of haikqApparently, 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 Days 12 – 13

i shall never grow weary of the greens
the blues and the golden hues
of summer in full bloom

nor tire of listening to songbirds
frogs, crickets and cicadas,
the rain pitapatting

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 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. ❤️

tread-softly

horse
nettle
deadly weed,
taint of poison,
apple of sodom, bane of innocents
