Today’s Carpe Diem prompt is Spearflower (manyroo).

Do you still recall
The first kiss of cherry lips
Felled by flower’s spear

~ | ~

Berries fall on snow
Like blood dripping from a vein
Red circles of life

~ | ~

Spearflower signals
Times of merriment and cheer
Winter warming hearts

  1. Lovely series of haiku jrb … well painted images. I especially like the last one … a winter painting with words. Thank you for participating in Carpe Diem’s daily haiku meme.

    I do believe awesome was my first thought…
    and still is…my favorite
    “Berries fall on snow
    Like blood dripping from a vein
    Red circles of life”
    The second line is past awesome for me.

    Thank you

    Thank you for your kind words which are humbly received. I do believe that in the second haiku ending with Red Circles of life, I was imagining the sparrows from Kristjaan and Lolly’s entries picking up the ‘red circles of life’ and continuing nature’s cycle.
    A tip of the hat to KZ as well who’s entry made me think of the first time someone got ill/died from eating the Spearflower’s berry and if the plant recalled the event.
