cock crow opens doors

welcoming the rising sun

a flurry of dust

Kim says of herself, “I may be retired but I’m busier than ever writing haiku and other poetic forms, as well as stories and a second novel which is tricky when I am constantly tempted by the Norfolk countryside and a baby grandson in another part of the country!” You can read more of her work at Writing North Norfolk.

I liked the way the cock crow opens the portal of dawn, transforming the world.

This haiku is part of our PORTAL theme!

I enjoyed this haiku because Kim took a different slant on the word care, and I think it works beautifully.

gentle caring touch
smoothing wrinkled sheets or brow
warmth of an embrace

Here is the first haiku from our featured haiku writer this week! I am pleased to introduce Kim Russell who scribbles haiku, tanka and other poetry at Writing in North Norfolk

I chose this haiku because Kim makes something tender and vivid out of what could be a cliche.

chlorophyll uncurls
each glistening appendage
