Ancient dragon clans,
nested they, in great arch-trees.
Travelers beware!

For TJ’s Household Haiku, photo/word prompt. the words are Arch & Tree. In researching the words I discovered that mythical legends tell tales of dragons nested in the arch-trees, their dense limbs brushing the underside of heaven. So to illustrate, I added our friends to TJ’s awesome photograph for my haiku.

Drem Yol Lok (“peace fire sky” in Dragon speak. It means, “Greetings” and an acknowledgement of territory and temporary withholding of agression). You might want to familiarize yourself with that phrase should you find yourself in the presence of a dragon in the arch-trees! 🙂

Here’s TJ’s original photo for the prompt:

Fickle Spring

how fickle is spring…
one moment, she’s warm and bright
the next, cold as ice


For TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge, prompt words, Spring & Cold.

ancient moments – a Haiku

Photo by TJ Paris

ancient moments

bright ancient facades
Kodachrome moments captured
greyscale just won’t do


For TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge based on his wonderful photograph taken in Rennes and the prompt words: moment and ancient.



haunting the hopeful
a ghost of a chance dangles
to keep dreams alive

I believe in ghosts
not that I’ve seen one up close
but i have felt them

my old house whispers
each creak, each groan tells the tale
of a voice silenced

Love’s Undoing ~ a Haiku

Buds that stay shuttered
will miss the exquisite pain
of love’s undoing…
