Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 342 ROUGH and Season.

Our Last Hike in the White Mountains

Once the journey starts,

harsh words and terrain hinder,

blind us—and now rain.

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 341 FROST and Glint.

早朝の雪、
みんなは家で、
でも一人。

Early morning snow,
everyone is at home now,
alone, however.

Früh Morgen schneit es.
Ja, alle sind zu Hause,
aber ganz allein.

La neve d’alba,
tutti sono a casa,
però da sola.

It’s been such a long time since I’ve participated in the haiku challenge. Today seemed like the perfect day to try my hand at it again. The theme for this challenge is frost and glint. I used the above photography by Fabian Mardi as inspiration. Also, I wrote the poem in Japanese, and then tried to translate it to English, German, and finally Italian. Of course, my native language is English, so it is likely that I made mistakes in the other languages–my apologies in advance.

When Now

Trees will remember

our failures, centuries

passing like seconds.

Yesterday and Today

I walked three miles

under a red umbrella,

shading summer’s heat.

Blueberry Pie

There are certain things

that remain storybook art.

I have yet to taste.

Through Layers

Where is my voice now?

Buried in the yard, howling

through layers of dirt.

Memories of Dirt

The woods became cars.

I no longer hear the birds

outside my window.

 

Should I smile more now

or less because of progress?

Summer burns my feet

 

as I walk barefoot

on asphalt, trying to live

memories of dirt.

Dream of nightfall

“Why bother to rise?”

I asked the sun, still smiling, 

drenched by summer’s heat.

 

I wander mind-fields,

pick thought-petals, have lunch, sleep

under the old oak

 

tree without worry,

with the sky protecting me,

I dream of nightfall.

To the Sea,

I watch anime,

pack, travel by mind (then feet), 

wear sunscreen, and smile,

 

knowing these days end–

often too quickly–I rush,

 thirsty and happy,

 

to the sea, then stop

because I can’t swim–still

I make time to learn.

Approaching summer

The horse looked back once

at the broken fence before

entering the woods.
