Written for:  Carpe Diem honors Jane Reichhold (1937-2017) G.) whisper of rain
Today to close this Theme Week I have chosen a few of her haiku from her “A Dictionary of Haiku” (the online version), the following series of haiku are all extracted from the summer section of “A Dictionary of Haiku”:


coming to sea cliffs
the off-shore breeze raises
a flower fragrance

curving with the land
a rainbow of clouds
moves out to sea

sunrise finds
fog in the valleys
fingers in sand

whisper of rain
on a sunny day the surf
wets my feet

@Jane Reichhold

Here is my attempt:

mountains glow
a lone blue boat rests on shore
fiery sun


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.
