  1. Rita Odeh says:

    twilight dawn-
    the flight of an
    empty cage

  2. Ripples

    water. the first mirror. a reflecting pool. i watch. Spring thoughts. drift. illuminated. beneath lanterns. in the water world. unknowing. i listen. my thoughts wander. beneath each ripple. a thousand more thoughts. reflected. mirroring. the air world. above. the water world. below. one touch. and i disappear.

    ripples
    my thoughts disappear
    in the reflecting pool

    • aloha Aubrie and all. every time I read my above prose I want to make a one word tweak. I thought I could let it go. I cannot. so the version I prefer is this one:

      Ripples

      water. the first mirror. a reflecting pool. i watch. Spring thoughts. drift. illuminated. beneath lanterns. in the water world. unknowing. i listen. my thoughts wander. beneath each ripple. a thousand more thoughts. reflected. mirroring. the air world. above. the water world. below. one touch. and i vanish.

      ripples
      my thoughts disappear
      in the reflecting pool

      thank you. aloha. r.

    in the dark
    of the night…
    a light

  4. Peter Newton says:

    patio shadows spring begins to stir

  5. Debbie says:

    unlit lanterns
    cast shadows
    add to darkness

  6. […] I Doodle, You ‘Ku #2014-23 […]

  7. James Brush says:

    the neighbor’s lanterns
    sway in this late cold front breeze
    someone new moves in

  8. the poignant shifts
    between light and shadow
    just like your heart . . .
    all I could ever want
    through a lantern path

  9. Katie Bock says:

    Light greater than I.
    Seaweed
    on my shoes.

  10. moon covered
    with light clouds
    country sky

  11. a walk in haiku says:

    held in a dream …
    the song of sparrows waits
    for dawn

  12. unspoken words —
    the paper lanterns
    of my dreams

  13. mirroring
    one of the things
    he used to do . . .
    I see more stars tonight
    with your hand in mine

  14. Adam Traynor says:

    blue dusk
    gods of the goldfish
    descend

  15. 4th of July
    red Chinese lantern
    delicate paper floats by
    soon to be burnt out
    then what will give me light
    on this dreary dark night

  16. Reblogged this on Failing at Haiku and commented:
    You do not have to respond to the doodle with a “haiku” you can respond with any type of poem. On day 23 I felt the need to do a tanka:
    4th of July
    red Chinese lantern
    delicate paper floats by
    soon to be burnt out
    then what will give me light
    on this dreary dark night

  17. Tanabata hanging on to the afterglow
