Written for:  Carpe Diem #1412 (extreme haibun) – Daisies
“Today I have a new task for you all. The prompt for today is “daisies” and you are invited to create an extreme haibun or in other words “your haibun may have a maximum of 55 words including the haiku (or in this task … tanka).”


thousand daisies
around the farmer’s house –
lowing of a cow

Here is my attempt:

Tiny pinpoints of white flashed
on the hillside. As I neared,
their size seemed to stay the same,
rather than grow in proportion.
They were miniature daisies, looking
as if they were painted to splash
the hillside with color.

green hill splashed
in rich whites with egg yolk centers
miniature daisies

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.
