on the other side –

sparks of cerulean blue

crackle in the breeze

Here is the second haiku from our Featured Haiku Writer – Isabel Caves. Isabel is the author of Strange Beings and uses her blog at Isabel Caves as an outlet for her creativity which expresses itself in photographs, stories and poetry.

This haiku stood out because it tells of what is on the other side of the portal, I imagined the portal to be at the writer’s back.

This haiku is part of our PORTAL theme!

diver’s slow descent
deep within a well of blue
subaquatic dream

Here is the final haiku from our featured haiku writer, Ken Gierke. Photography has always been a favorite pastime, so taking photos often is as important to him as the sights he sees, but those sights aren’t limited to Nature. He finds himself seeking angles and lines, and, as you might expect, some of the most intriguing lines can be found in architecture, but they also can be seen in groups of objects – and that includes people. Check out Ken’s other creative work at Rivrvlogr

As we started the week with a relaxing haiku, so we end the week with a dreamy sea haiku; the image of the “well of blue” stuck with me for days after first reading this haiku.
This haiku is part of my OCEAN series.

Moon weaves star-fabric
spun light binding the blue earth
in quicksilver coils.

Marbled green and blue
against a starlit black drop.
Just think, we live there.

hard yet soft, vivid
high reaching, relaxes and
invigorates; blue
