Riddles and Puddles

rainbows in puddles:

mirror reflections of sky

or nature’s street art?

My response to Carpe Diem #1047 riddles (delayed post) (had to be “puddles”) – Chèvrefeuille has given us examples of “riddle” haiku:

A fallen blossom

returning to the bough, I thought —

But no, a butterfly. 

© Arakida Moritake (1473-1549) (Tr. Steven D. Carter)


where do they go?

these flowers on a path

by summer’s passing

As well as haiku about puddles:


dried up

puddles covered with pollen

moiré shapes of shores


in puddles

the pattern of raindrops

dyes the hills green


spring sky

snow-melt puddles filling

to the brim
