day after

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1812 The Day After Valentine’s Day …
“This haiku is about Valentine’s day or more the day after. As you maybe know Saint Valentine’s Day is on February 14th and is a holiday in almost the whole world, also in Russia. Here is a special haiku by Alexey Andreyev for your inspiration to write an all new haiku in the same sense, tone and Spirit as the one given.”

day after Valentine’s –
red petals on the floor, and
a broom in the corner

© Alexey Andreyev

scattered roses

petals of roses

petals of roses
scattered through the living room
a ring on the table

© Chèvrefeuille (our host)

Here is my attempt:

rose petals curling
empty candy box on floor
love ages too soon

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.
