HAIKU

Sun rise radiates
through a dew drop on the limb
a prism rainbow

Can you try writing your own haiku today about light?  Would you like to participate in the world's largest collaborative poem on the internet?  Simply write your haiku on light and go here to EarthRolling Haiku Collaborative.  The theme of Year of Light was designated by the United Nations.  You can leave your haiku in the comments and find out more about this project at the link above.

Today's Poetry Roundup is hosted by Robyn Hood Black at her blog Live on the Deckle Edge.  Thanks, Robyn, for hosting us.  You'll find other great poems and poetry are her blog site.

    1. I do believe people need more time to examine dew drops. In Tucson they don't last long.

    1. Isn't it Mary Oliver who takes time each morning to greet the day? Most mornings people are too busy getting ready for work to even notice what the day might bring.
      Good Morning to you. I hope you have an amazing time greeting the morning at The Highlight's Ed. Foundation Barn.

  3. Hope it's been a light-filled day for you, Joy! Thanks so much for sharing your poem and the link. I did break away from rounding up around sunrise this morning to step outside and invite a haiku - got one posted. There are hundreds now (Fri. early eve.) - what an amazing project.

    1. Haiku folks are amazing. Thanks for adding to the poem, Robyn. I don't know about you but it is light here by 5 AM so I've been getting up earlier lately. It does help if we want to take our morning walk before it gets too hot. Summer is quickly rolling in around Tucson.
