Until it could fly again

Then back to nature

Spookiness prevails

Goblins, ghosts, witches come out

Creepy yet tasty

Remembrance Day – Haiku

Remembrance Day

Honoring the brave people

Serving our country


Eleven o’clock

On November eleventh

Silence, two minutes


Courageously fought

Those who died for us

Did not die in vain at all


Sacrificing all

For our wellbeing

Always remembered


The ones that returned

And ones that died are heroes

We thank all of you


We wear the poppy

Commemorating soldiers

Each and every year

Return to walk amongst us

Storm on the Horizon – Haiku

storm coming

Watch the clouds roll in

Lightening soon to alert us

Of incoming storm


One can smell the rain

Thunderclaps, rolls, and rumbles

Torrential downpour

This haiku was written for Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille over at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie. This week’s prompt: Stormy Weather.

I wrote a haiku on stormy weather back in 2013 that I wanted to use but the rules are that your poem must be new. If you’d like to see the one from 2013 here’s the link.
