gliding sunset sails

water trails on waking dreams –

slip the horizon

So many different images in just three lines – this haiku made me remember the film At World’s End.

in meditation

my mind wanders to the east –

and never returns

Again, an original take on the theme, using the mind as a portal. I liked the unexpected last line.

Curled and coiled roots writhe

about the darkly cleft oak.

An entranced entrance.

Such a vivid picture came into my head on the first reading! I love the clever last line also.

a slipstream in time

shimmers into existence;

blue box transports me

Reflection pulls me,

inside mirror world traps me.

Takes my place outside.

I liked the different slant in this haiku – the portal itself is a trap!

A Moon pool mirror

rippling with unseen forces

seeks to snare our souls

I love the dark tone of this haiku – an innocent image slowly sinking into something quite sinister …

forever barred shut

wellspring of creation’s song

now beyond our reach
