Playful Shadows – a Triple Haiku

IMG_3488 (2)

Morning light pierces

tattered edges of night, and

darkness slips away

 

Birds begin to sing!

What once was stillness is gone

as dawn runs through trees

 

Within the old house

no one knows that shadows play

outside the windows

 

A Haiku (for my poetry-challenged friends) is typically three lines of unrhymed verse with five syllables on the first line, then seven, then five. Since I continued this Haiku from a single, to a double, then a triple; it is my response to today’s one-word prompt: Continue.

It is also an entry in Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Shadows

  1. Can I make a confession? I normally skip past when I see the word Haiku so deplorable is the general standard of fair tenuously offered up in it’s name. But something made me stop and I am so glad I did because these are real Haiku of quality continuing, flowing like a stream through a Japanese garden. Quite lovely. Thank you Grammy!
