Poetry Picnic Week 23: New York Times Headlines

New York Times Headline: Bird-Watchers Revel in Unusual Spike in Snowy Owl Sightings:


Here I share a piece from a poetess  titled: I Try to Image The New Moon.


The air, a washed pale blue,
The boat, powered by two oars,
The lopsidedness as you swung
left and right.
I try to imagine the new moon.
Before breakfast, my son made
seafood pasta, and somewhere
between the taste of scallops
& fusilli, the air was hinged
with a door & a gorgeous double
rainbow, against the blue.
Somewhere, a bird,
a different sky, a boat
of unconditional love.


My Response in Haiku:

Is that all there is?
Everything is possible!
Smiles, no tiptoe steps.

Charming tip-toe poem.

I liked that, no tip-toe steps; walk firmly and proudly into the future. That's what I got out of it anyway. :-) Thanks for sharing. Blessings.

Can't agree with you, Cad. I found it impossible to find Magpie#101 here.

I do like a nice snowy owl or two myself.

There was strong balance in the boat but I love the unconditional love part.

And such a great Haiku.

Thanks for playing in this weeks Theme Thursday - Balance. I hope to see you there next week and cannot wait to see what you do with the next prompt.

God bless.
