Haiku 1: My Hammock Awaits

I love haiku! When I first began writing poetry in 2005, I'd go online to sites that offered poets writing prompts so I could practice expanding my creative muse. Haiku is something I treasure: here is one of "my treasures" from my Haiku poetry chest. Enjoy!

 Calm, quiet, serene... 

Placid glassy pinks and blues

Reflect the sky's hues. 

***

Clouds, curling and dark... 

Extinguish the last of light.

It soon will be dark.

***

Fragrant, wafting breeze...

The scent of tropical air

Erases all care.

*** 

Sounds around me twine...

Gently they lull me to sleep;

Vigil 'oer me, keep.

*** 

Evening paradise...

All around me is at rest,

Til the sun shall rise.
