between raindrops – a Haiku

rain hovers in gray
‘midst brief bursts, sunlit blue
breeze tossed leaves patter

the calm after the storm

the calm after the storm

after the rain
earth shimmers green
leaves dance on the breeze
wisps of my hair toss a flutter
as I breathe in the calm

A Gogyohka for today. What a lovely day it is! Peace to you! ❤️


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

~kat


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.
