Daily haiku, NaPoWritMo, day 2

NaPoWritMo has a great prompt today. Check out day two HERE. I’ll write a couple of haiku using a few of the words provided. (s-l-s or l-s-l). (These poems might be more micro-poetry than haiku).

elusive songs
mercurial thunder 
fog on the river

  1. Your final word, generator, stood out to me as if all above that word equaled a generator for creation. I loved this haiku. Left a smile on my face. Thank you, Colleen.

    1. Thanks, Amy. I struggled with that one, but thought of a lone pearl in an oyster looking like a cyclops! Kind of silly, but you saw the oyster as the creator of the pearl. Thank you! 🙏🏻

  2. I think you’re already having too much fun with this, Colleen. The first poem is sublime and the second made me chuckle. I’ve never thought of an oyster as a “pearl cyclops generator.” 🙂
