May be May




~ 1~

To complete
One leap
Over the sea

~2~

O, how iridescent
I rise in the morning
Face iris glory

~3~

Dandelion’s dream
Among enlightened hearts
A prodigy child

~4~

May happens too fast
Green grass stems graduation
Feast pass over fall

~5~

Left out in the woods
All five senses departed
Besides haiku mode

~6~

They are full of wisdom
Burning to the end of days
Misread the blooming

~7~

Discovery time
Bifurcated Yin & Yang
Lead in Scarborough

~8~

Shadows are dreaming
What if we tame the clouds
Embraced by sky light

~9~

Jagged life path
Thirst brought you here
My intimate friend



Note: Most of  haiku here inspired by art of  Kumiharu Shimizu


Haiku #9 - 3WW prompt: intimate, jagged, thirst

  17. I like May, fast or not. My favorite of these haiku is the one acknowledging Thirst as a way to get on the path.

  18. May seemed to whiz by this year, at particularly break-neck speed! I love the first one....that would be amazing :-)

  20. Shadows are dreaming
    What if we tame the clouds
    Embraced by sky light

    There may be good dreams or on the contrary some bad ones. But one has to fight it even if ill-equipped if it means survival! Great lines humbird!

  21. All good but I really like the last one.

  22. A very good set. Number 5 is an all the time thing.

  23. it is perhaps that jagged life path that gets us to be ready for now, you know. One small step across the ocean, can it be done. Perhaps, but first we have to stop seeing the ocean.

  24. i dunno why exactly but the one with may passing so quickly hit me most... maybe cause it feels like time is running at the moment...
