Written for:  Carpe Diem Sparkling Stars #16, Shiki’s “lost in the mist”

The goal is to write an all new classical haiku inspired by the one given.

when I looked back,
the man who passed
was lost in the mist

Rosebuds cling to bush

December frost whispers white

Cut back in morning

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

  1. The image of the rosebuds in the frost.. For me there is a sadness in that.
