Butterflies Haiku

wing over cherry petals -
shadows embracing

Editor's First Choice Haiku
Blue Berry Haiku,1, June 2010

Editor's Comment:

MPH: We love this haiku for so many reasons. First, we admire the use of "wing" as a verb, since the actual butterfly wing, a noun, and its shape are essential to the themes and imagery of the poem: the shape of the wing and its shadow and of the petal and its shadow are shown by the poet to be so similar, akin, as the shadows meet under the cherry tree in a sweet embrace. And, in the same way that the shadows match and embrace, so, too, the letters and sounds of the poem do in an aural and visual alliteration.

The relationship between things and their shadows becomes an interchangeable simile for letters and their sounds: the r's and s's in all three lines, and the ing's and long o's in lines two and three. Of course, the theme of the essential one-ness of all things is another layer in the poem, the plant and insect here shown by the poet as one in that fleeting moment in which their identities cannot be separated, in that moment when the two merge on the broad face of Spring's renewed earth.

And More Haiku

Old man
Spending his night
Finding a dream

On lapsed path he walks
Blocked veins and dry blood
Black& white flowers

Ancient man
No future only vague hopes
Spiked roses

Three New Haiku

Notes of music
Fell into the ocean

Rain upon the sea
Softly lamented the loss
The conductor died.

After great sorrow
Gigantic waves crash the shore

Tawdry tinsel shed,

One drunk's loud carouse
falls on deaf fears few afford,
none numbed feelings rouse.
