wet – a haiku

wet

air, cool misty, damp
tiny rain drops pelt my cheek
sharp, breezy kisses

Haiku

after a cleansing rain, hush
but for bird chatter,
soft blush of blooms on the breeze

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.


May Day 11

spring mourning

dawn
muted,
canopy
cloaked in gray,
birds twitter taking shelter, comes the rain

May Day 5

the rain

how
freely
each droplet
surrenders…would
that I could lose myself so completely
