In order of words

Written for:  Carpe Diem Full Circle #1-2016
I will give you twelve (12) words (for every ”hour”) one word. The goal is to write haiku using the words as given in the clockwise way.

Here are the twelve words you have to use as described above:
1. rainbow
2. autumn
3. seagull
4. crane
5. cherry blossom
6. love
7. sunflower
8. blue sky
9. clouds
10. butterfly
11. nectar
12. beer


double rainbow
after autumn rainfall
seagull pauses

birds crane their necks
watching cherry blossoms bloom
in love with color

sunflower hangs head
blue sky of summer vanished
over autumn clouds

butterflies hover
drawn by sweet scent of nectar
watching a bear

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.
