Haiku-O-Matic week 4

November 1, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Haiku-O-Matic is over! The final week’s haiku:

from scarletbutterfly

divine breath expels
crimson strokes across the sky
sun and cloud entwine

Something we’ve all seen, but now with a deeper level of meaning.

from BarTalk

winter falls early
uncle death smoke it skyward
in the wet oak wind

A great imagining of the spirit of the change from autumn to winter. “Wet oak wind” says so much in so few syllables.

the glowing amber of brandy and leaves
fluoresce yellow against the blue
toast the summer

I love the phrase “glowing amber of brandy and leaves”.

from GaryBob

The lone star falls dim
My urban-blinded eyes gaze
At infinity

So true, GaryBob. I grew up on a farm, but now live in a city and I find myself on many evenings looking up at the few brightest stars straining to find my old familiar friends.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the wordgame!
